Owner Bob McRae writes – “This month’s property shown on the cover is at 49 Elm, a prime block in the historic Mansion Neighborhood. It was built in the 1870’s as a single family home with servants’ quarters in the basement. It is now divided into three units. There were three buildings built on the block with identical exteriors, but each has its own different interior. The units feature 11-ft ceilings with crown mouldings and ceiling medallions with ceiling fans throughout. The main floor has two massive sliding doors that can isolate the living room for those “private” conversations. Remodeled kitchens and baths give the residents the charm of the old but the conveniences of modern days. Much of the building’s electrical and plumbing infrastructure has been replaced, as well as roof, windows, skylights, and central heating boiler. 49 Elm is also a “green” building, non-smoking, using energy efficient lighting throughout, energy star appliances, computer controlled heating, water saving plumbing fixtures, and new front load
laundry machines.”
