Prospect Heights Addition

We practically doubled the size and value of this little row house.  Moreover, winning Landmarks approval set a precedent for the district.  With an extra floor at the top and a two-story extension at the rear, this was the first time Prospect Heights’ new historic district accepted a big addition.  The new top floor is all master suite with a private sun deck and a commanding view. The rear addition opens the living spaces to the backyard, while allowing for a large sunny kitchen. Finally, a new stair links new and old floors.
