The front and back of the house when they purchased it. Hard to see the potential!
The transformation just about tripled the size of the house--adding a large new kitchen and dining area at the rear, and a luxurious master suite on the new second floor. A few exterior walls were saved, the original doors and fireplace, but not much else.
The house during construction. Notice the oval shaped foundation vents that the owner scored while antiquing in New Orleans. From this angle, it's clear the house got just a bit larger.
Recently, after enjoying the house for a number of years, the clients I designed it for decided to put it on the market. It's a testament to the excellent job they did on the transformation that it sold in the first week it was for sale. Take a look at these afters (Photos taken from the MLS listing).
|The new porch and front door give the house a much better street presence.|
|The Great Room envelopes most of the original house. The fireplace is the only thing left of the original interior.|
|Another view of the dining room. Beautiful trimwork was added throughout.|
|The vanity area in the master bath. So crisp and clean.|
|The master bathroom is in the second floor addition. Love the striped marble floor.|
