2009 Residential Preservation Awards: 1013 Ramona Street

Presented to Theresa and Mark Rowland in recognition of their dedication to the preservation of their 1907 home at 1013 Ramona Street. This sensitive renovation preserves many of the home’s historic features, including narrow lapped siding which had been hidden under stucco for many years, and contributes admirably to the character of the Professorville Historic District.

Presented to Cody Anderson Wasney Architects, Inc. for the renovation of 1013 Ramona Street, a 1907 house in the Professorville Historic District. This masterful renovation preserves the homešs historic features, including the narrow lapped siding that had been hidden under stucco for many years.

Note: The 1979 nomination papers for Professorville list this house as non–contributing, but this restoration returned the home to a state worthy of Professorville.
