Early Georgian House

This 3-year project was a total renovation restoration, starting with a gutted shell.


Before After

The property was built in 1803 as a grand Georgian mansion and renovated at the turn of the century to become a two family house. This included taking out the front door and center window, changing it to two entrances, and building a brick wall down the entire center of the house.

All past renovations were removed and the house was restored to its original one family facade, followed by all new mechanicals, new baths and kitchen, plaster, paint stripping and restoration of all moldings, original sash, etc.


Before After
Notice how the bottom step is buried (left). Repaired entry and brick pavers (right) (click to enlarge)

The concrete sidewalk surrounding the marble entry had risen 8", burying the bottom step. The marble was repaired and relayed on a proper foundation, and the concrete sidewalk was replaced with 19th century brick pavers.
