Adrian resident’s work on Victorian-era home gains attention

Vinny DiPonio stands on the front porch of his home at 124 Clinton St. in Adrian earlier this month. The Adrian Women's Garden Club selected DiPonio's home as its Garden of the Month for June.

ADRIAN — There are likely a few extra years of get the job done wanted to restore a Victorian-period property in Adrian to its unique grandeur, but what get the job done has now been accomplished is starting up to achieve focus.

Due to the fact Vinny DiPonio acquired the residence at 124 Clinton St., he has been functioning on it very little-by-very little so that it at some point will emulate the actual look of Queen Anne-style homes. DiPonio has set at minimum four decades of labor into the property. He is expecting there to be at the very least five to six additional years of do the job ahead of him right before the residence — equally inside and exterior — is absolutely restored.

“I’m truly fired up to make (the property) what it was originally supposed to appear like,” DiPonio claimed. “The property has come comprehensive circle — perfectly, at the very least three-quarters of the way full circle.”
