After: A Second Life for a Second Empire

Built around 1895 in the Second Empire style, the house featured no fewer than four porches (one upstairs). Along with its gingerbread, the front facade showed off a pair of mahogany doors, six floor-to-ceiling windows, and two dormered ones poking out from that mansard roof. The house now boasts a new roof, a freshly painted exterior, replicas of its original window moldings and cornices, and a wrought-iron fence.
