We began with this great home on Delaware, constructed in 1894 as a spec home! (I didn't know there were spec homes in 1894, did you?) The young couple who have lived there since 2003, have totally renovated the home, including the addition of a brand new kitchen. They have done a lovely job, maintaining the feel of a home over 100 years old. Note the trolley hanging on the porch, the symbol of the Ormewood Park neighborhood.
I love the roofline detail shown below:
This was another of my favorite homes, located on Woodland:
The kitchen has been renovated, but has the feel of that of one of my grandmother's kitchens! This Craftsman bungalow was built in 1922, converted to a duplex at some point during its life, and then returned to a single family dwelling by its present owners. They have done a wonderful job...and most of it by themselves!
The home below is truly incredible! The couple who presently own it and are still in the process of renovating it, didn't begin this daunting task until last year! It was constructed in the 1920s, converted to a triplex, and now is a single family residence.
I love going to the Carroll Street Cafe, in the heart of Cabbagetown, and was so please when I realized that this was the mysterious destination for my birthday dinner!!! We had Sesame Ahi Tuna, Escargots, and Tomato Mozarella Tapas, plus some sinful desserts, but if we don't mention them by name, the calories won't count, right?!!!
Actually, they both were, since they even let me snap their pictures!!
Thanks guys....it was a great day!!!
