The graffiti is maddening and adds NOTHING to the facade of this house. It looks like the building could be quite attractive with some attention.

I love this picture! houses in decay can be very beautiful. I like the moss on the roof, and even the graffiti looks nice with its soft colors.
greetings, Hilde

Could be a beautiful house in the middle of the park. It should be mandatory that owners of empty houses renovate them or sell them if they can't afford to renovate!

Sharon said...

What a cute little building! It would make a great little cafe.

I do agree with Kate!! It's too lovely a house to be ruined graffiti!! A great shot always! Hope you're enjoying your weekend, JM!!

Oh, this is so sad: it looks like here...

Graffiti is distracting here but I would have to say that the building has real potential to be transformed into something quite stylish. Would be nice :).

... how about banning spray paint!

Bill Nicholls said...

That looks like it was a nice building once

I hope the windows are still behind the bricks and may be recovered someday, for it's a cozy little house

It looks like the graffiti here is helping move the building along into the "Decay" process. It otherwise looks like it has "great bones" and is worthy of restoration.

The Graffiti really ruins it. It's a beautiful structure.

That could be a wonderful home.

Rather more ornate than the abandoned houses here but ours somehow lack graffiti.

A lovely little building. A good way to windows bricked up in an empty house. But I do not like these graffitis, it is a shame when all the beautiful mess.

Joan Elizabeth said...

Such a pretty cottage. Horrid to see the windows blocked, makes it all so sad it's no wonder it is attracting graffiti.

This looks like it was once a beautiful home. It's especially a shame to see the graffiti.

A little bit sad and yet so much promise. Beautiful decay!

JM, I see these photos and I want someone with endless money to come to Portugal and care for its people, love its history and architecture, embrace its soul.

So sad how these places have been left to decay...

I bet this was a very sweet house before hard times.
