JUPITER — Like a little something from HGTV’s “Fixer Upper,” the City of Jupiter has its to start with taker in its historic preservation incentive system.

Jupiter Town Council members voted unanimously to award $44,186 in grant funding to Jupiter property owner Christen Hutton so she can renovate and protect her historic 1945-constructed property in the 300 block of Second Street. Officers also gave the primary portion of the residence, formerly owned by 3 early city council associates, a local historic designation.

Hutton, a land planner by trade, describes her dwelling buy as a love story. And like many romance tales, this a person entails strikeouts and a stroke of luck.

A few several years ago, Hutton claimed, she was buying for residences in the historic West Palm Seashore neighborhoods of Flamingo Park and Grandview Heights. She’s a sucker for previous homes, but Hutton said she came to a realization: “I just didn’t want to buy something exterior of Jupiter,” the town where by she grew up.
