A quick glance at 83 Ann Street would make you think that the developer just put in new windows, a door and siding. However, this project was no walk in the park. William Bollinger of Spectrum Development sent over this makeover. No doubt he rescued this property. How many people do you know would have walked in here and walked right back out?! I love these houses on Ann Street, if only they could all be rehabbed like this.
Here are the interior transformations. William said the house was built circa 1820. He tried to salvage materials when possible, like these wide plank floors that were painted. They took him forever to sand and refinish.
Regarding the brick you see removed below William said that it wasn’t real brick, but a plastic veneer. It also makes the room look so much brighter. Well done!
Here are some more nasty before pictures just so we all can appreciate home much work was done here.
A few more after photos of the different units:
These historic homes have character that can never be replaced. If you have your own before and after photos to share of your home exterior or interior and would like to share it on Newburgh Restoration, please email me.
