When the home was purchased, it had been divided into two apartments by a previous owner. “The house was in major disrepair with garbage everywhere and pet stains,” explained Hood. “It had been empty for quite a long while, sitting empty. I knew, though, once we walked in and saw the old trim and the tall ceilings, and the beautiful staircase, that we could bring this home back to life.”
It wasn’t the only house they looked at, but for some reason, the Cochrane home stood out.
