Dolores Wisdom was drawn to her home at 2115 Bellefontaine St. despite its deteriorating appearance and walking through boxes of empty bottles and animal feces for many reasons. First was the vision she had for the home, resonating with the architectural style and substance still radiating beyond the homes of current state. Another major factor was the proximity of the bus line as Ms. Wisdom does not drive. She also loved the fact that, inside and out, would be a blank slate to work on while keeping the traditional Queen Ann structure that as she loved that framework. The resulting remodel ended up being just the right size place to call home.
Even though this is a 2-story residence, the new modern open floor plan on the main level complete with an office and sunroom fits her lifestyle, health, and the need to downsize from her previous home.
She also loves the neighborhood where many of her new neighbors have called home for decades.
