On the northeast corner of Alta Dr and Crestline, is some old mediterranean style house that is being demolished. A few weeks ago they demolished some sort of structure on the south side of the house. It appears they're well underway with the house itself; the roof is completely gone and if I recall correctly from when I drove by the other day, the north wall is completely down also. It looks like nothing is really salvagable, unless they try to do something like the Alamo with it.
Who has owned this through the years? Anyone signifcant? Given the size and location of the house you'd think it would have been someone fairly wealthy. How old is the house? How big was it? Who let it get in such a state of disrepair and why? It looks like it was a fabulous home at one time. It's rather like what happened to all the houses on Penn and Summit in the '50's and '60's. What was it's last market value?
