September 1st began our lease of a second floor three bedroom
apartment on Munjoy Hill. One block from the sea and built in 1878, it
is an ideal location and contains historic character, such as stained
glass windows, original molding, hardwood floors and beadboard trim in
the bathroom and kitchen. Our landlord bought the apartment in a dingy
state, carpets and fake wood paneling covering every surface. Luckily
for us, he had the skills, patience and eye to restore it into an
apartment full of light and beauty.
When we moved in, we did a lot of rearranging, especially in the kitchen, and now it is a home.
