The front was totally charming with the three openings to the front and two banks of rooms with high ceilings going back.
It had some really nice original doors and pasta tiles and did I mention that it was CLEAN. The place was swept and tidy and you could see the casa itself.
We initially did not look at it because of its location but on our next trip we decided to check it out. We were impressed with the original pieces that this casa had to offer but as we stood there on that little cute street a bus crammed its way down every five seconds (or so it seemed) and prostitute street was a block and a half away!
Then, as LeAnn pointed out, did we really want to have to navigate the busy main square every time we wanted to go somewhere either by foot or car?
We went back NOB and for a long time this little casa was a real contender in our minds. We spent many a weekend sketching plans and imagining ourselves living on that street, in that part of the city. But we keep coming back to the realization that we were trying to tell ourselves that it would be ok living there, that the street really wasn't THAT busy, that the prostitutes wouldn't bother US and that living so close to the bustling downtown markets would be HANDY.
Then we stopped and listened to ourselves.
I think this little charmer is still on the market today.
