Scarritt House Update


The William Chick Scarritt Home, 3240 Norledge, reconstruction is progressing nicely.  Should have the roof in place by the middle of January.  Which means time from fire to re-roof just four months. The third floor is completed.  Below, sections for the reconstruction are prefabricated just a block away. I'll follow up with the raising (literally) of the roof in a couple of weeks. The home was originally built in 1888.

Historic Northeast Mini-Mansions Volume 4

Built in 1901 this home has been lovingly restored in Pendleton Heights.  
Original wood throughout...unpainted.
 Old and new in harmony.

 The homeowners did the remodel design and most of the work themselves. 

 Secret play area under the front stairs.

 Master bedroom has french doors out to the sleeping porch.

 The home was cut up into three apartments in the 1940s.. the restoration left only the third floor apartment intact... but it too was remodeled. (Above and below)

 Awesome view from the third floor balcony. 
 Above looking southwest, below looking northeast.  Garfield School on the left.
This will be coming on the market soon... through Eric B. and Associates.

Constructive Demolition

Workmen today started removing the second floor porch on the east side of the Michael Heim House on Benton Boulevard. Leslie, the new owner, has planned all along to restore the house to the way it originally looked after construction in the late 1800s. When completed the home should look like it's twin one door north which was constructed for Michael's brother Ferd. The Heim family was owner of the Heim Brewery in the East Bottoms. We'll keep you posted on progress. Ferd Heim house below.
