New life for one of Union Hill’s most majestic homes

The RTD ran a neat look at the renovation of 2002 Princess Anne Avenue on Saturday:

In its early years-it was built circa 1903 – the house was one of the largest and most striking on a new block of eye-catching mansions. […]

In the 1930s, though, a new owner converted the 5,800-square-foot house into a retirement home, and it languished, frozen in time, for 70 years. A new owner began a structural restoration of the house in 2008, and after buying it in April, the Conrads undertook a basement-to-roof renovation of the historic property.

[…]

Even as workers replaced the water-damaged floorboards, boxes of cabinets already stood stacked in the kitchen, awaiting installers. And plumbers had roughed in plumbing for the house’s five bathrooms. In time, plasterers would arrive to patch the walls, and painters would follow them.

“Fortunately, we don’t have to sacrifice any historic accuracy, and the floor plan lends itself to modern comforts, even if we are using the space differently than the builders intended,” Matt said.
