A splash of colour

Recently I noticed a brightly painted house not far from where I live. I was surprised I hadn’t noticed it before. Maybe it was freshly painted this past fall. Regardless, it certainly caught my attention. The blue is quite vibrant and while I can think of a few other blue houses in Ottawa this one appears to be the brightest. That started me thinking of other brightly painted houses around town.
Most downtown residents are familiar with the "six sisters", a group of colourful homes packed tightly together off Bank Street:

The Golden Triangle has several colourfully painted houses. This small yellow charmer is one of them.

Is there a more colourful house in Ottawa than the big pink house of Westboro? It’s tucked away in a quiet corner of the neighbourhood.
