314 North Maple

Friggin Squarespace — it published an early draft of this post and didn’t include the revisions/additions that were meant to comprise the final draft. That’s been happening a lot recently, and it’s driving me crazy. I’ve tried to recapture what I originally wrote, and am reposting it now.

314 N. Maple Avenue, $3.4 million, hit the market a couple of weeks go, and I neglected to mention it. My bad, because it’s a beautiful house. Originally built in 1925, it’s been completely redone by my friend Ferdinand Steyer, principle of Mountain Works.

Ferdinand is one of the very best of the builders working in our neighborhood — he’s at least the third generation of Austrian woodworkers in the family and though he’s been here on our shores for 40 years or so, he carries that heritage with him. Scrupulously honest and a fantastic builder, if he re-did this house, it’s perfect. Go see this house.

And of course, it has the Zebra (s)
