Fitzgerald HouseI’ve been a bit obsessed with the beat up Gothic manor on the corner of Adams & Arlington in West Adams for some time now.  I finally walked through it last week and it’s a un-holy mess!  Built in 1906 and beat up from years of neglect, possible squatters, many horror film shoots & who knows what else, it would be a serious labor of love to bring it back.

The bathroom tile in the master was incredible.  Someone, please help me find his tile!

Poor baby of a house.  It could be amazing but you would still have to fight with the deafening traffic noise on that busy intersection.
