Victorian Splendor

Originally designed by J. Merrill Brown in 1887, this Queen Anne style home sits proudly in Cambridge's Avon Hill Historic District. Past was blended with present in the restoration of this property to its original 19th century elegance. The design satisfied historical requirements with its attention to authentic detailsand materials; it also satisfied the wishes of the family who has been connected to the house through several generations.

@Lisa Lerner I really like the color too! I love seeing sheds with design that matches the look of the home. Was the shed constructed the same year as the home?

Clean out the shed and garage. This is a biggie! Divide the job over several weekends and plan a yard sale at the end to get rid of excess stuff.See ways to make more money and have fun at a yard sale
