|Bringing Back Holleywood||
This Mott bathtub was installed in the house in 1915. Once it was scraped and cleaned and polished, it looked new.
This is an original Mott tub that came with the house. The team needs a moment to recover after moving it. They estimate it weighs about 1000 pounds.
The vintage Mott tub from a second floor bathroom is going back in. However, the new bathroom plan is reconfigured and to make sure it'll fit comfortably under the window, Matt cut out a sample bathtub in balsa wood to let us try it out for size. Weight difference between sample and original tubs: about 1000 lbs.
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.
