Before & After ~ Frank P. Glazier House, Chelsea, MI.
Another wonderful example of what is possible with determination and commitment. Before photo: Chelsea Tax Assessor. After photo: Charles Reinhart Company. Once the home of Chelsea’s most famous citizen, the Queen Anne style house had spent decades divided into apartments before being restored as a single-family home.
The restoration took 14 years, with a good deal of the work done by the owners. You can read more about it in this “Community Observer” article: https://aadl.org/aaobserver/36163. This real estate listing from last year has dozens of interior and exterior photos: https://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/208-South-St_Chelsea_MI_48118_M33216-19305?fbclid=IwAR2ZOvcXXeKHXk_Dtnkp_8ltli4rEU9r9qSjgvdLbhrXVWPGYoDeThM0HfU
