This home is essentially the “before” of its neighbor, 232 Elm, which is also on this tour. Deep into the renovation, the owner of this in-progress project has big plans. The rear room on the first floor will be expanded to match the width of the kitchen, creating an open living area. This means that the front room could be used as commercial space, perhaps for a studio or a shop. Upstairs, the original two bedrooms will be complemented by a new third floor room with access to a roof deck that will overlook Elm Street. The thoughtful upgrades being made include a new roof, beautiful new windows and restored exterior trimwork. When it’s complete, this house will live big and would be a great purchase for someone who wants to cut out their commute and work just steps away from their home.
