Built in 1902, this home epitomized the colonial shingle-style common to the surrounding neighborhood at the beginning of the 20th century.  In more recent years, the home served as the parish residence for many Christian ministers and their families.  Fondly nicknamed Stella Maris, meaning “The Star of the Sea”, the home was privately purchased last year and delicately renovated.

The renovation on restoration of the exterior and giving new life to the interior while being sensitive to the home's original, classic design. The home's existing windows were removed and fully repaired, caulked and sealed and reinstalled with the addition of custom exterior storm panels.

The kitchen was relocated from the rear to the front of the home to create connectivity between the heart of the home and the front porch with street views.

On the exterior, the home's shingles were given a wash of unique, bright color unlike any other in the neighborhood.
