This house, located at the corner of West Friendly Avenue and East Greenway Drive North, is a bit out of character for the Sunset Hills neighborhood. In a part of town where homes are usually very traditional colors, to see an aqua and purple house is definitely attention getting- especially on this prominent corner lot. The pink flamingo, perched on a tree stump by the entrance walkway, hints at the fact that there is a story behind this color scheme. Painting a house is a commitment to a look as well as a financial investment. It is not something you do as a prank. We hope to find out the story about the house, which only recently was painted these colors.
Do you know the story behind this house? What do you think? Freedom of expression? Challenging the status quo? By the way, those of you that know Greensboro well know that the house has a cousin on North Mendenhall Street. Since it's the weekend, perhaps we'll see people working in the yard and can ask them. We have a couple of pink flamingos stored in the attic. Perhaps we can stop by and give them to the homeowners.
Have a great weekend and check out the brightest house in your neighborhood.
