This has been a long, on-going post that I have been working on for awhile now. It all started with my daily walk in the historical area of Beaufort and noticing this home that was about to be demolished.
So sit down, grab a cup of coffee, relax and enjoy the tour!
Above is a photo in the very beginning of demolition. See how the second level is elevated? You are probably wondering why the second level was kept? Well here in Beaufort, there is a zoning code in the historical area that states part of the original dwelling must stay intact.
|I love the brick chimney and large front porch|
|Three French Doors in front of home!|
|Can you see the garage to the right? Wood clapboard was added to the outside exterior|
|This is the back of property and where the ships were built in the 1700s. How would you like this view from your back patio/porch?|
|Love the detail in the brick work|
|Metal roofing added to garage|
Brick wall was built around the whole perimeter of home, what great curb appeal! Don't you think?
|Beautiful address tile added to front brick column|
Love the herringbone sidewalk!!
I Looovvvee the metal roofing!
Side of house
This is a actually a park area where there are fountains and benches for anyone to use. It is maintained by the City of Beaufort. It is located to the left of home.
So here we go again, a BEFORE photo:
And a AFTER photo:
I hope you enjoyed the tour as much as I did watching the transformation! Now only wish I could of had more close ups! My dream would be to get inside and take photos of this lovely home!
Thanks for your visit.
