Built in 1856 and until recently one of the 100, this house at 2120 M Street has seen a remarkable transformation. (BELOW: 2009 / 2011 / 1965 [right])
nice work fellas! as a former and future m street-er we are all greatful. see you in a month!
Another RBVA act of resurrection. Looks great!
I always loved this house. The way it sat sort of cockeyed on the corner overlooking the 600 Block of North 22nd like a loving, yet disheveled auntie. The ole auntie is back and looking good. Thanks to RBVA!
@BK “fellas” misses a big piece of the puzzle on this one. But yes, a great job by all!
i love, love, love this house! thrilled at it’s transformation, and the modern addition on the back makes it quite livable by 21st century standards. so happy for this corner of M St in Union Hill!
Agree with everyone that it looks wonderful! Also agree with s. kelly, ‘fellas’ misses the lead carpenter who is female – yay, Syd!
wow,those folks do great work.another jewel returned to the crown of union hill.
it’s is a great transformation! however, i wish they had included all the dental moulding and porch detailing in their renovation… seems a shame to have missed that detail…
@#8- I think the house that was renovated is actually not the one in the foreground of the “Before” picture. It’s the one on the right, which doesn’t appear to have had much porch detailing. (Look at the position of the front door and the front steps to see what I mean.)
Yes, MrsAlex is right. In the 1965 picture the old house that was restored is on the right of the picture, at the corner of the block. Ecochick,I like dentil moulding as well, but that is typical of Victorian houses built around the turn of the century. This house, built in 1859, has the typical details of the houses of that era when all the houses were simpler. The details are restored exactly as they should be.
Ahhhh! Thanks Mrs.Alex!
That does make more sense… I was confused by the photo.
Lovely, just lovely:)
