123 81st Avenue
This magnificent house
on 81st Avenue at the corner of Austin Street was one of the finest to go up here. However, by 2004, it was in terrible shape and badly in need of extensive repairs. It took new owners more than a year to restore it, but restore it they did, remaining true to its original character and the character of the neighborhood. A very grateful community says thank you.
