Talk about leap frog: what had been the dowager of this pretty block in Fern Hill is now the belle of the ball.
You name it, they did it: dramatically opened up space (see, “What do you do with dead space?”); four all new baths; a spectacular new Kitchen; a widened, 2 car garage in place of the original one car; 3 new dormers; a brand, new lower level with 1,700(!) finished square feet (and over 4,500 total in the re-done home); and a new mud room.
And on and on.
A quick sale (after about a month of market time) for virtually full price, followed by an even quicker closer (one week).
