We've covered 12 + Alder on Apartment Therapy before, but we recently took a second look at the Portland home and had to share with you this image of the view across the street...

The cathedral is not only a beautiful neighbor, it's inspiration for some of the house's design elements: The cathedral's slate roof informed the material selection in the entry (pictured below) and the framing of that view is no accident.

What buildings neighbor your home? Does your building relate to its neighbors in any special way?
