Tour stop 5: 1020 Russell St.

Historic with all the “mod cons”:

This home is one of four in a row built in the late 1800’s. A 2009 fire gutted this home, as well as the entire third floor of the whole building, which was not able to be salvaged. Because not even the floors were left in this unit, the developer was able to reconfigure the rooms to fit contemporary lifestyles, while retaining the historic exterior. New wiring, plumbing and windows were also installed. The master bedroom-closet-bath layout uses the space in a creative way, and the basement has become a cozy teen hangout for the owners’ son.
