Added to the State & Federal Registers in 2009, the Fairmount area features a wide variety of architectural styles ranging from Classical Revival to Craftsman.  BHC’s home at 2012 Fairmount represents one of several “unusual examples of Queen Anne style houses” in the neighborhood accoding to the Historic District’s narrative description.  Come see BHC’s transformation of this home, which incorporates modern energy-efficient features and maintains ornate historic architecture!
