It appears that the eulogy I wrote for 334 E. Cypress last month was premature and altogether incorrect.
I"m thrilled to report that this adorable 87-year-old fire damaged house will not be razed!
Every time I walk by this little charmer, I expect to see its demolished remains. Instead, on a recent walk to downtown I literally jumped for joy when I noticed that a new roof was being put on.
A neighbor who lives in the back apartment was sitting near her open window when I stopped to snap photos. She told me that it was determined that the structure was still sound and its internal wounds were not fatal, so the owners opted to fix 'er up rather than tear her down.
I absolutely love it that, against the odds, this landmark vintage dwelling is getting a second lease on life!
