Great news! According to social media, this awesome house at Cook and Whittier has ben sold, and the new buyers are planning a renovation. They hope to start in July, and will create a blog to share progress.

Nice!
That's the best news I have heard in a long time! Though it makes me just a bit sad that I won't get to renovate it myself. Not that it would have stayed standing long enough for me to find that kind of money.
From the realtor's Facebook post:

"...cleaning the yard and cutting the vines growing on the house happened yesterday. 10 neighbors came out to cheer the beginning of the rehab!"
Awesome! I have been intrigued by this one since the first time I saw it 20 years ago
