The Lueders house on Albina Street

This amazing, historical house was slowly restored over a period of 40 years by Tom Roe. I saw it first about 35 years ago, when it was still pretty neglected. It looked pretty hopeless, I have to say. There had been talk of tearing it down, but fortunately, this man came along to save it! http://baha-news.blogspot.com/2011/09/lueders-house-is-tom-roes-masterpiece.html 
The setting is really wonderful, with lush greenery all around, palms, cypress, monkey-tail tree and other plants I can't identify.
