A few month’s back, I posted the below pic of a home that looks like it was plopped down on the corner of Courtney and Arista. It appears to be in the process of being renovated:
Some Googlin’ revealed the following information about the home:
The Frank A. Heitkamper House, built in 1900.
This visually prominent house built on a large corner lot is a good example of Craftsman-style architecture– typically a four-room over four-room configuration with a low-pitched hip roof. The full-width front porch, in this case with Doric supports and a solid balustrade, was also quite common. The bellcast hip roof has wide overhanging eaves and frieze; windows are double-hung sash with architrave molding, and the exterior is surfaced with double bevel siding with cornerboards and water table.
The listing has it as: 2009 SE Courtney Avenue, Oak Grove Legal Description: 21E02DA05000.
That’s down the street from where it currently sits. So, the mystery continues – was it moved? And what is its fate?
