I’m absolutely thrilled to report that 4817 Arabia Avenue has finally been purchased and renovated — and a beautiful renovation it is!  This success story happened because the neighbors banded together and made sure this home didn’t continue as an eyesore — and also through the hard work of our Housing attorneys and Code Enforcement folks.

Here’s the home when it was featured on the blog in 2012:

Here’s what the house looks like today:

I am also happy to report that permits were pulled for the work done on the home.  Bravo!
