Straight outta Compton

This mansard makes me drool.  It's on Hawthorne in Compton Heights and combines two of my favorite elements-- Compton Heights and mansard roof.  I think Compton Heights is the most beautiful neighborhood in St. Louis city.  Don't get me wrong- Lafayette Square and the Central West End are lovely architectural gems.  Compton Heights, however, is where I dream of living one day.  I love the houses, the people, the wide streets and the fact I wouldn't have to change zip codes if I moved there.
