The Brooklyn Eagle reports that 113 Willow Street has shed its asphalt shingles and will return to its c. 1820s wood facade. The property was purchased last year for $2.9 million by an area investor group 1113 Willow Street LLC.
Brooklyn Eagle: Now that workers have removed faded ghostly-looking shingles from the front of 113 Willow St., wood planks from a bygone era are there for all the world to see, above a basement floor covered with rosy brick.
“It’s going to be gray, the original color,” a worker told the Brooklyn Eagle of the clapboard uncovered during the renovation project. “The house will be done in three months. The interior is 80% finished.”
