This late 19th century Freedman’s cottage was in poor condition and in dire need of restoration when Massey Martin acquired the Victorian dwelling. Massey Martin completely restored the structure and renovated the interior. The galley kitchen was completely renovated and included open shelving for display. New windows and doors at the rear of the home were added to provide light and views of the rear garden. A small trunk room that served little purpose was converted to be a bunkroom. Massey Martin completely furnished and designed the interior of this jewel box of a cottage just nearly over 500 square feet. A blend of traditional cottage elements, such as the bead board walls and beamed ceilings were contrasted with contemporary furnishings and fixtures.
