Six years ago, Meg Keller-Cogan and her husband, Clark Cogan, moved to Buffalo and settled into a house that immediately felt like home.
Here is how Keller-Cogan described their home in an email to The Buffalo News Home & Style section for our “Home of the Week” online feature:
"Our E.B. Green designed home was built in 1900 as a simple Craftsman design.
"We are fortunate to have purchased the home six years ago from loving caretakers who worked to preserve the architectural integrity of the home’s original design.
"For example, original pristine hardwoods in excellent condition flow from the expansive foyer through the kitchen and surprisingly reappeared under layers of carpet, linoleum and subflooring during the 2013 renovation of the second-floor laundry room.
“The home’s modestly sized kitchen located in the original library was lovingly updated making creative use of every square inch of its limited space. The upstairs master bedroom suite has two large, customized walk-in closets, a rare amenity in an older home.
“The chestnut-lined walls of the dining room are a testament to finely honed craftsman skills evidenced in the walls, built-in china and crystal storage and one of the home's five fireplaces,” she wrote.
Do you love your house enough to show it off like Meg Keller-Cogan did? This could be your chance.
