These homes may be known for their exemplary architectural styles, past noteworthy inhabitants, or for being the site of significant historical events. During the restoration process, it’s crucial to maintain the home’s original integrity and charm. 

Leverage has rounded up four recently remodeled historic homes spanning the areas of Nantucket, Fort Bragg, Oakland, and Savannah. Each property boasts historical elegance and modern renovations, striking the ultimate balance between old and new.
