Before you mentally prepare to move in to our newest (and arguably dreamiest) Highland Park abode, heed warning: It’s not on the market. Nor was it ever. This isn’t the first time we’ve revealed a finished project long after it’s sold — but to be fair, 5620 Wellesley Avenue hasn’t been available since we first placed its drywall. Of course, we’d always seen the potential in this space. But it wasn’t until KBDG designer Katy Popple stepped in that the home’s current owners were able to see it, too. Ultimately, we suppose Wellesley’s story isn’t all too different from the rest: We found a tired home on its last leg and morphed it into something livable. Who doesn’t love a happy ending?
