Myers Park-Eastover

This photograph of two houses on Scotland Avenue in Eastover illustrates a phenomenon that concerns many citizens.  The Classical Revival style house in the foreground has been dramatically impacted in terms of scale by the new house just constructed next door.  Compare this with the sensitive design of the house on Altondale pictured below.  The design retains the the scale of the front facade while making a large rear addition.  The streetscapes of Myers Park and Eastover will be compromised if future infill does not take account of its place in the streetscape.  Unfortunately, the house is bracketed by large new houses.
