Our last 5 projects have been Respectfully Built new construction homes. Whilst we find much joy and satisfaction with in-filling vacant lots with complementary single family homes, there’s nothing like restoring a historic home — especially one that was simply longing for some tender loving care!
Say hello to the 20th FW Heritage home – Respectfully Restored 1606 Shearn!
And yes, we are once again, on Shearn St – this home marks our 8th project on this street!
Previously, this home stood dainty at just 920 sf, but BIG on original features – brick piers, 6″ tongue-and-groove walls, original windows and doors, 5″ wide plank floors and original exterior millwork. We have updated the home with an 800 sf addition, shined her up and are excited to have a new First Ward neighbor!
Respectfully Restored and Respectfully Added-On, she is a 4 bed / 2.5 bath home, packed with original historic touches and the necessary modern amenities. Located just one block from the Hike & Bike Trail, walking distance to many First Ward amenities and next door to two of our new construction homes — who could ask for more?!
