This house has not been for sale in recent times; word is that it is the owner who is building a new home. Perhaps that is why the site is one of the cleanest and neatest demolition and building sites that one sees. Although the house was well maintained, it had not been enlarged and perhaps had not been updated extensively and hence was the buildings were assessed at only $42,000. Demolished on April 23, 2015.
But more interesting is the underlining construction for the "rolled" roof edges. I contacted an architect friend, who informed me that this is called "steam bent shingles style". I think the original roof would have been cedar. Cedar shingles would have been more suited to the curvature than asphalt shingles.
Link here if you want to see more on this technique and how "story-book" it would have looked with the original cedar shingles.
