4000 sq.ft. home on 3/4 acre with an in-ground pool – all of it in need of vast renovation and lots of TLC.
I’ve remodeled a few houses in my adult decades but the remodel of the home in Essex, CT was certainly the most challenging. A rambling, cut-up, pseudo Victorian – Four Square that had seen better days was still proudly holding court on the Main street of Essex flanked by homes offering much greater sophistication. Offered for sale in the real estate market hey day of 2003, she sat, unsold, for over a year – a bit of a testament to the amount of work needed to restore her original beauty and charm.
