A year ago it looked like that, and now, the iron gate has been restored and the entrance looks like this..
The front porch was rebuilt several times before they seemed to arrive at this...
Strangely, the window on the left of the porch is now where somebody has their kitchen sink, in what used to be the grand entrance hall, it has been divided to make one apartment larger. A strange place for a kitchen if ever I saw one. And when I saw these sheds, I thought, who the hell thought that would look good??
Already, For Rent signs have been going up, and these aren't cheap($450 for a 2 bedroom). I really do believe that in a worst case scenario, the close proximity of neighbours will mean a few noise concerns and a high turnover of tenants.
It has been nice to see the stables go from the above to a quite cute small dwelling, and I think this sold for around $550,000. Kerrazy.
before and after:
The two smaller blocks of four, built in 1915, have been lovingly restored also, and a one bedroom was over $500,000.
