This 1883 Eastlake Victorian provides a look at an in-progress renovation. When complete, it will be offered for sale. Hidden for 80 years under layers of “insulbrick” and aluminum siding, the decorative attic vent, fish scaling, and original wood clapboards were in great shape and needed only to be cleaned up and painted, giving authentic charm to the exterior of this home. The first level has new hardwood flooring, a lovely dining room and an open kitchen and gathering room. The developer bought a huge salvaged church cabinet and is having the kitchen cabinets custom built to match it. The fireplace was altered to serve both the dining and gathering rooms and a peaceful covered porch was added off the kitchen, next to the generously-sized pantry. The half bath has an original window frosted and mounted on an inside wall, bringing in extra light and detail. A portion of the basement was turned into a wine cellar, which is now accessible from the first floor.

The second floor has all original wood flooring (some of which was reclaimed from undamaged areas on the first floor). The master bedroom’s ceiling was vaulted, making the room feel very open and welcoming. The three bedrooms each have nice closets and there are two full baths and a laundry room on the second floor. Little touches like the original fireplace in the master bathroom make this house a perfect mix of new and old!
