I can't see your camera settings, but the first thing I thought was the picture was noisy. It might actually just be the way the brick is on the facade.

A few thoughts:
1) The color is very drab. I usually recommend that we switch to black and white in situations like this. The color is giving us nothing and is probably dragging us down.
2) The composition is very static. The building is quite centered and it's a typical "off axis" presentation of a building.
3) The brick, as mentioned above, either didn't capture well because of the light, or the processing or something. It looks very muddled and not contrasty enough. You need more contrast to the picture.

The tree growing from the inside is classic. The bottom of the image seems cropped a bit tight but you shot from a great POV.

There seems to be some nice potential subjects here but you just squared up the house without much compelling composition.

Even with a blown out sky, the pic still feels dim and flat. Not sure what adjustments it needs. 6
