The living room with limestone fireplace
and slate-tile hearth
A fully paneled bar/rec room with oak
tile floor and bathroom. The bar can be hidden by sliding pocket
panel doors.The room is
lit by neon that is inside the valence at the top perimeter all around
Big picture windows let in plenty of
daylight and give a great view of the front yard
4 season room in the back with a dutch door to the kitchen, slate floor,
and lots of windows
The sauna is a cozy and warm
addition to the 20x20 master bedroom
Second full bathroom still in its original condition with vintage Crane
fixtures and funky '50's tile. I am hoping to keep this as-is, just a
little restoration necessary.
The 1/3rd basement leads into
the crawl space. According to the inspector, this is only the
third house in 15 years he's seen built like this, with 5' crawl spacesand poured concrete floors throughout.
Lights and switches everywhere. It made it very easy for me
to workunder the house.
So far I have replaced 80% of the canvas/asbestos insulated
galvanized iron pipes (seen below)feeding
the fixtures with new copper pipe (it was done carefully & safely
and disposed of properly).
