Here is an exterior shot of our house when we bought it in September 2001. Actually, I believe that this is the picture I first saw on the web that piqued my interest to begin with and kicked off this whole deal.

The real estate agent clearly was doing her job, selecting a vantage point and angle that drew attention to the classic saltbox profile and the "park like setting" (as I recall the realtor-speak blurb claiming), yet far enough removed to mask the well-worn roof, poorly installed replacement windows and overgrown back yard (an impressive mixture of steroidal forsythia seasoned with an unhealthy dose of poison ivy).

That being said, we now owned, in concert with our fine friends at Astoria Federal Mortgage, an undeniably cool house with lots of potential.
