No exaggeration, we saved 101 S. Guthrie from the wrecking ball! Two adjacent vintage houses on the lot had already been torn down by the previous owner, who intended to sell the large lot to a developer. Identified by Preservation Durham as one of the most important historic homes in the neighborhood, 101 S. Guthrie had been divided up into a rooming house and neglected. Original built ins, gasp! Pocket doors, gasp! It was a preservationist’s dream.
