Exterior Front

Christine Flynn and Liz Bagley, aunt and niece, bought this two-family house from the rest of their clan—the house has been in the family since it was built in 1916. They've turned it from a tired and dated old lady into a fresh pair of urban apartments, with Liz living on the first floor and Chris at home on the second and third floors.

The outside of the house looks almost brand new—the ivy that was strangling the house came down, the crumbling stucco was repaired and repainted, new asphalt replaced the worn-out slate roof, the porches were reborn, a new lawn was laid, and a perfect white picket fence popped up in place of the old scraggly privet hedge.
