We really poured our heart and soul into this project. Every inch of this house had to be scrubbed, re-paired, re-plastered, re-painted and more!
After years and years of neglect and abuse in one ridiculous summer we were able to (with help from many I might add) bring it back up to a level it deserved to be.
Great bones and lovely period details made this a restoration worth doing.
Now on to part one of the hour tour!
All exterior windows, trim and wood work restored and painted, new roof, new eaves and soffits, new furnace.
We found a great set of period appropriate doors on one of our road-trips, and brought them back for this place.
They look like they have been here from the beginning, I couldn’t be more pleased with the end result!
To the right a large front room with stained glass.
Front stairs are painted Farrow and Ball’s Drawing Room Blue
The hall leads to living room area then beyond to kitchen, powder room and rear staircase.
Original 1800’s wood staircase detailing
All floors, walls, ceiling, doors and trim freshly painted after all of the repairs.
Stained glass window in landing and also in the front 2 bedrooms.
Raised glass detail on landing window
Etched glass detail
1800’s iron grate in hall originally for a stove pipe, now just a lovely period detail.
2 front west facing bedrooms, 3rd middle bedroom and a 4th east facing bedroom overlooking the backyard.
Each bedroom features freshly painted walls, ceiling, closets, matchstick blinds and new decorator ceiling fans
Large Middle Bedroom
Large east facing bedroom
We were able to keep all the original trim details preserved and restored.
It features a great view into the mature maple tree outside and stained glass.
I have since moved the bed around and put up some shelving for our stuff while we are visiting.
There’s something about this little room that I just love!
Next time, bathrooms, attic, rear stairs and more!
