My client purchased this home near Montclair in March (see the pre-purchase photos below). The house needed major restoration, and my client was the perfect person for the job! His love of architecture and his desire to restore this gem to its former glory is exactly what the doctor ordered.
Historical documents show that the home was built by father and son builders, the Rowlands. The father worked with Bernard Maybeck, and the Maybeckian influences are strong and clear – maybe too clear? Check out my client’s blog about the home, history and work he’s done so far: Maybe-ck
It will be very exciting to follow the progress of this labor of love!
