White Carriage House @ 165 Columbia Heights Being Restored To Original Brownstone Brick

Landmarks has approved restoration of a beauty of a carriage house at 165 Columbia Heights, which currently is adorned in white stucco. Curbed reports that the former Jehovah’s Witness property, which sold last year for $4.1 million, will be stripped of the facade—added in 1932—to restore the brownstone brick underneath.

Ann Krsul is the architect charged with restoring the facade for owners the Feigers. If, in fact, the brick turns out to be un-restorable, salvaged brick will be used. In addition, the steel windows will be restored back to their original wood.

The Landmarks Commission approved the plans unanimously.

    I have never understood why anyone would want to cover up the original brick. I love brick. I lived in a large loft apartment when I first moved here and the only good thing about it was the brick wall.
