Cute White House
Call it cute, call it interesting. This is another of Astoria's unique wooden houses with unusual details. Although I haven't been inside this house on Bond Street, many of Astoria's older houses (and some of the brand new ones) have floor plans that can be categorized somewhere between quaint, bizarre, and extremely funky. Sometimes they are charming, sometimes you wonder what the builder was thinking. In their day, they must have made sense to someone. Now the funky layouts and interior spaces are conversation pieces as often as not. Most of the houses here have stories based solely on the plan or construction. Have you seen a house like that?
