Buchanan Preservation

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
Pre-renovation, this Victorian mansion had been divided into a quadplex used for student rentals. This house was purchased for $180,000 in 2007 and is now worth $1.5 million.  Many of the unique original features, including mantels, tile fireplace surrounds, and heart pines floors were refurbished. The house is a winner of the Pyne Preservation award for it’s balance of energy efficiency and historic charm. Not many homes can boast an underground rain water cistern and a dummy waiter.
