|Bringing Back Holleywood
White painted fireplace in the parlor will be stripped down to tiger-eye marble.
Piles may seem haphazard but if you look carefully, there's a method to the madness. Electrics in one corner, paint and plastering stashes in others. Even though floors will be redone, walkways are protected by "red carpet" butcher paper. Removed items are labeled and saved, preserved for future use on the job, or for posterity, as were original front doors, partially seen on the right.
who we are
We are a couple of Upper West Siders from NYC who never set out to buy an old mansion in Connecticut. But the moment we walked through its massive front door, we were smitten. The info on this site is earnestly cobbled from a variety of sources, including the web. Please let us know if we've gotten something wrong, or if there's a story about Holleywood you'd like to share.
