Upper Eastside Townhouse

This townhouse was converted from a 3 family building into a single family residence.  It the course of the project the entire interior was gutted and new framing, electrical, plumbing and other utilities were installed.   A new grand staircase runs through the building and the existing facade facing the street was removed and a new brick and cast stone facade was installed.   A small breakfast room was added on in the back opening up to the backyard.

Existing facade

This is the façade of the row house before we started our work. Painted stucco over brick (never a good idea), crumbling bluestone window sills, and drafty old single pane windows is what we found.

New Facade

This is the front facade after we rebuilt it with new brick and cast stone details.
