Built in 1924

This old house is across the street from the Venetian Pool. About 15 years ago the owner added a two story addition to the back of the house. It blended perfectly with the original house. Five years ago the house was sold and renovation was started. The old part had some termite damage and a passerby could watch as timbers and walls were removed. After many months there was little left except the newer addition. Then it came down. this treasure was lost. But the Phoenix appeared. The new home has all of the feeling and looks of the original. In fact I like it better then the original.
