On the Market: 115 Woodholme Avenue

I am pretty sure that Palmer & Lamdin would be rolling over in their graves if they saw what became of the beautiful house they designed on Woodholme Avenue. 

Interestingly, when I started this project exactly a year ago, someone sent me some P&L blueprints of this house. It took a while to figure out where it was, and whether it had built or not. The date on the plan is July, 1922 and they were done by William Lamdin. This house has had so many additions and alterations, that it's nearly impossible to see the classic lines of the original house. 
The interior of this house has been faux painted to within an inch of its life! A little accent here or there would have been great, but the sheer volume of faux painting, covering almost every square foot of the house, is a bit much. But then, it was done when faux painting like this was a thing!
