The photo below shows the home as it appeared in July 2012.
The house was reported to still be in near perfect and unaltered condition in 1992 when it was recommended it be listed on the National Register of Historic Places (the owner declined), but in April 2007 a court-ordered inspection found 24 code violations, both inside and out. A large open hole had been cut in the attic facade for "ventilation," neighbors reported pieces falling from the house and it was in danger of being demolished. Considerable improvements appear to have been made since that time. This is the only home of this style in Escondido.
The photos below were taken in October 2007.
Located at 439 East 5th Avenue in the Old Escondido Historic District.
