Triple threat

This beauty on Brannon between Southwest and Arsenal is the Jennifer Lopez of the mansard world and I just hope it never produces twins.  This Mansard cannot sing, dance or act, but it does smush together three styles to make an ugly Mansard:  split level, Mansard roof, Swiss chalet.  Don't ignore the terrible windows, door or cable wire.

  1. My sister lives down the street from this mess. Every time I drive by, I think, "Dear God! What is that THING!" It really is a horrible attempt at a mansard roof.

    The Shaw neighborhood has some interesting fauxsards, if you're ever in the neighborhood.
