July Theme Day: Chimneys

The first day of each month is Theme Day in the City Daily Photo community. This month's theme is Chimneys. This chimney is on a house that I have shared here and here before. It is an abandoned house located next to Cravens House on Lookout Mountain. The first time I saw it I came home and looked up the tax records on it. (As if I could seriously buy it, haha!) I found out that it is currently owned by the United States of America and the last purchase price was $360,000. I hope the National Parks Service has plans for it. It is a cute house, with a real slate roof and darling screen porches.

The City Daily Photo portal is down, so Julie in Sydney has hosted this month's theme day. Click here to see chimneys from around the world!

A monogrammed chimney...how unique. I check your links; it does look like a house that could be outstanding when renovated. For one that needs a lot of work, that seems like a pretty steep price...or is it a bargain in your area??

I may have see it before, but it's still gorgeous!

An interesting proposal for the theme day. Well done, thanks for sharing and have a good week.

It's an interesting and attractive house. I wonder how much of that price is the Lookout Mountain location?

What a delightful looking house, I love big chimneys built into the side of a house like that. Wonder if it has an inglenook fireplace inside?

I missed theme day (I really can't think of any chimneys here in St. Pete) but this chimney is amazing. I hope something is done with this house.

Terry,
I removed your comment because I didn't think you'd want your email out there for everyone to see.
It's nice to know I'm not the only one who sees what a treasure this house is
