4 W 4th Street
Scope of Work:
The subject property, 4 W 4th Street, was purchased by Murphy Properties II, LLC on April 23, 2019.
The original structure was built in 1910. It had been decades since any improvements had been made to the home.
The house was a 2-story brick structure with 1,504 square feet. Originally, the home had kitchen, living room, dining room, 3 bedrooms and one bath. After renovation, the first floor has a living room, kitchen, dining room, and half bath. The upstairs has a master suite and a second bedroom and full bath. The attic has conditioned space for a playroom or an office. The basement has a slop sink, and storage.
The original slate roof was not salvageable. A new synthetic slate roof was installed on the front gabled roof, with new standing seam metal on the rear and shed style roofs. All original windows were restored to working condition with new glazing and panes where needed. All new heating and cooling, all new electric, and all new plumbing were installed. The outside was scraped and pointed and the original shutters were restored and reinstalled.
The original fireplace in the living room was repaired and gas logs installed. The fireplace in the dining room was made double-sided to open to the kitchen as well, and gas logs were installed.
All of the wood floors and wood trim throughout were refurbished to their original glory.
The kitchen floor was leveled and new tile installed.
Physical work began in May, 2019, after all permits were granted. Work was complete February of 2020, and sold to the new owner in March of 2020.
