3007 Norwood Avenue

Teddy, Katie, and Caroline Sweeney welcome you into their home. This home has been in Teddy’s family since the 1960s. Both Teddy’s father and uncle lived here until they were married, Teddy’s Grandma and Grandfather never moved. Katie and Teddy moved in on April 1, 2005. This is their first home and the house we welcomed Caroline into on July 1, 2005.

Teddy and Katie renovated the home’s top three floors. Prior to painting everything the Sweeney’s had a master plaster worker repair all damage on the first and second floors. All of the carpet was removed to expose the hardwood floors. Teddy, himself, refinished the entire first floor and one room on the second floor. The attic has been changed from a storage space to a wonderful 2nd family room, office and work-out space.

The entrance door is original. Notice on the staircase the three beautiful stained glass windows and on the landing another set of stairs lead directly to the kitchen. When on the second floor be sure to see the stained glass boat scene in the bathroom. This is the homeowner’s favorite window.

“This part of the City has always been special to us, specifically because my Grandmother lived here. We spent many weekends and evenings enjoying Acorn Hill and we continue to do so today. When we moved in it was not so much the house and the yard that we loved, but rather the people and the community. This truly is an oasis in the City. We thank Grandma for the opportunity to take over her wonderful home.”
