Welcome to Centers and Squares

As a Cambridge real estate agent, the city squares of Cambridge, Somerville and Medford and the town centers of Arlington, Watertown and Belmont, Massachusetts are my home turf.

Charlie Allen Of Cambridge Featured In Old House Journal

Cambridgeport Mansard Restored by Charlie Allen

Charlie Allen of Cambridge Featured in Old House Journal. The December 2009 issue of Old House Journal is filled with features with a local spin. After I finished with my favorite Remuddling page here’s what I found:

Cambridge contractor, Charlie Allen, writes about a 10-year renovation and restoration of a Second Empire mansard on Kelly Road pictured at right. Charlie Allen Restorations has brought back many houses around Cambridge to their former glory and it’s a real treat to read about the metamorphosis of this house.

An article about a Winchester Queen Anne Victorian details its transformation from a two-family into a single. The house had been covered in aluminum siding and stripped of architectural detail. Not any longer!

Fans of Modernism will enjoy the article by a Lincoln homeowner about the restoration of a Modernist house after a fire.

As always OHJ is packed with useful articles for old house enthusiasts. Others include:

  • How to research your house’s history
  • Protecting your house from fire
  • Repairing plaster walls
  • Repairing leaded glass
  • The Beaux Arts Style

Want to learn more about your neighbors’ old house experiences? Old House Journal is not to be missed.
