The O’Brien-Rubio Residence
This stately brick Georgian Revival, with its original art glass windows and elegant interior elements, is a true heirloom. The current owners are only the third family to have owned the home in the 85 years since it was built. They have sensitively restored original woodwork, have beautifully updated the kitchen with ecofriendly materials and have made extensive improvements to the energy efficiency of the home. One of the owners’ most fascinating recent projects is an elaborate rainwater containment and irrigation system consisting of rain gardens, swales, permeable pavers and a 2,500 gallon retention system with pump.
