I decided to include other shots that show more of the house and why I wish I could fix it up. I think the door below leads into the basement.
This house is beside a business parking lot in downtown Durham, NC. Realistically, even if it were for sale and I could afford to buy it and fix it up, I don't think I'd really want to live across the street from where I work which is where it's located. Especially since I've lived in the same house in Raleigh, NC since 1984 and the company I work for lets me work from home most of the time. Then again when I do have to drive to my office it's about a 45 minute drive from where I live and longer in rush hour.
I don't think anyone uses this house anymore and it definitely needs a lot of work. I've posted pictures of it before and when I park there I frequently photograph it. It's surrounded by office buildings and with the exception of one other old house which is used by a real estate company it's the only house in the immediate vicinity. On the plus side it's across the parking lot from Grace Garden in a city park and it's also a few yards from the Durham City Farmer's market.
