So glad you could drop by. I am an 84 year-old home and the centerpiece of Danny Lipford’s “The Kuppersmith Project”.
I was built in 1926, the same year Marilyn Monroe was born. I was the first of what was to be several Tudor homes on The Cedars in the Spring Hill section of Mobile, Alabama. But the Depression hit and the developer went out of business. Now I have the distinction of being one of two Tudors on the street.
Back then, residents of downtown Mobile, Alabama would come “up the hill” to my neighborhood to escape both heat and mosquitoes and all the roads were made of clay. People kept horses, since we were in the country back then.
My first owner was James Fagan and his wife Georgia Ann. The Kuppersmith family bought the home in the 1950s with their three lovely children. There has been much love and laughter here over the years.
Needless to say, everything about me is old. My plumbing and wiring are outdated, my windows leak and foundation creaks. At the start of the project, I was a 1900-square foot home without central heating or air-conditioning and not a drop of insulation. Over the next six months, all this will change and I will be transformed into a modern low-maintenance family home by Lipford Construction.
I will be featured in a 13-part series on the TV Show Today’s Homeowner with Danny Lipford and in the pages of Better Homes and Gardens magazine. Everyone is making such a fuss over this old gal.
