127-129 Roselawn Place

This Dutch Colonial was returned to its former dignity by removing inappropriate stucco and replacing the original windows. The redwood siding was able to be saved but the upper shingles had to be replaced. The only thing that remained of the windows were the original openings. Period appropriate window sashes were salvaged and the two bay windows were created around them. All the double hung windows and frames had to be replicated. A similar house showed two diamond shaped embellishments on the upper story which the owner chose to duplicate. A light tan and white combination cover the house and a beautifully landscaped yard surrounded by a white picket fence have returned the turn-of-the-century house to its original state. The commitment and dedication of the owner to architectural accuracy is truly commendable and very deserving of the 2014 award.
