curb appeal - modern architecture
I've been disdainful of residential construction as of late, and some may wonder what do I like?
I like this one on Semlin Dr. in East Van. I don't know a lot about it, and my Internet search for information has turned up nothing. If anyone has any info. on it, I would be glad to read it.
What I do know about it is that it was bought some years ago by an acquaintance's land lord and restored - with grants from the City and/or provincial gov'ment. It has a heritage designation ("B" list is my understanding) as one of the few examples of Modern Architecture in Vancouver. It was completely "restored" some years ago. I wonder what it's worth?
This place merits the solipsist seal of approval (TM).
