Another Grande Rue mansion is restored - progress at September 2007
The restoration work continues at 14 Grande Rue. The entire structure has been stripped back and the new restoration is well under way. One can see from these site pictures that the financing of such a large project can require some degree of creativity as they stand beyond the scale of the resources of individuals but below the subsidy provisions of major independant historic buildings.
