Our most-read piece this week was Cynthia McIntyre’s newest Hot House installment about an on-the-market, modern renovation of an old Canton row home that’s been conjoined inside with a neighboring warehouse. The result of the renovation is a pristine two-story, four-bedroom, four-bathroom home with a roof deck and a rare (for the neighborhood) two-car garage.
