These stories are what we are all about! We are happy to share this article in the Providence Journal about how first-time buyers Dylan Peacock and Miran Kicic saved the Cook-Cohen house – a 1911 a Colonial Revival/shingle-style duplex on Congress Ave. in Elmwood.

Our own Jane Driver assisted in navigating the purchase of the house. Peacock and Kicic were looking for a multi-family with lots of character, and the Cook-Cohen house had plenty, but it also needed plenty of work. “The roof was leaking in five spots, and the leaking had been going on for about 10 years, leading to pervasive water damage. A kiddie pool, and several Tupperware containers, had been placed around the house to catch falling water. Problems with a bathroom above the kitchen in one unit had weakened the kitchen ceiling. On the exterior, shingles were falling off the house and a board was supporting the sagging, fire-damaged front porch.”

The couple has since rehabbed the home and will be celebrated as the winners in the homeowner category at the 2016 Rhody Awards for historic preservation. Read more here!
