I always knew Vestavia Hills would prove to be a treasure trove of mods. It is one of the older "Over the Mountain" suburbs, incorporated in 1950. It was developed at the right time, so I was hopeful. I just barely dipped my toe in the neighborhood off Canyon Drive . . . lo and behold!
Note the butterfly roof:
The handrail on the stairway has a touch of the Titanic to it, but . . .
Interesting massing of the brick here -- if I could only vaporize trees for the duration of a photo shoot.
Another butterfly roof. This one is pretty grand, and just needs some love. Two big caddies in the carport.
This one is a FSBO -- maybe an estate? Lots of potential.
This last one is fabulous, if difficult to photograph. Sited beneath the road, the back of the lot drops into a gorge. The cantilevered design makes it appear to float over its site. An enchanted place.
