Purchased for its location and potential, the homeowners knew it would take a lot to get this home in shape. But beneath all the issues was a real showstopper.
Stripping away the bad, we could celebrate the good, like original door hardware, front door, original staircase, three original fireplaces and a layout that, with some modifications, could really work.
The home needed a true primary suite, a beautiful kitchen and practical function with a guest suite, laundry room and layout that brought it back to life. We shined up the best historical elements with careful rehab of many windows, doors, staircase, floors and fireplaces. We brought in new materials in the bathrooms and kitchen that were a perfect balance with the existing historic charm.
Finally, we added even more charm to the front façade with the addition of a historically appropriate covered second story porch.
The home is now a showpiece that fits perfectly with the neighborhood. It is a celebration inside and out of a beautiful historic renovation.
