When a fellow REALTOR® friend called and asked if we could meet her clients over at a home they had put an offer on, I of course said we would love to! We often work with REALTOR® associates to help clients budget a remodel prior to them either offering on a home or removing their final conditions. I knew it was a historical home in The Crescents neighbourhood and I had no idea how much I would fall in love with this project. During our walk through with the client, we found many hidden treasures that took us back to a time almost 100 years ago. This is when the original owners built the home. Crazy right?!
Check out some before’s of this awesome project and follow along as we overhaul #thehomeofmanyfloors.
We found maid buzzers (in working order, I might add) wired between the kitchen and the second floor rooms, glass block windows, a dumb waiter that went from the kitchen to the upstairs formal living room, and banquette seating with eclectic tiling around it. The gorgeous gumwood trim was carried throughout the main home which will be incorporated into our new design. Sometime in the 1970’s a suite was built over the garage which has since been converted into a bedroom wing of the house. There has been some really unique and interesting details that we found.
We are very excited to work with our clients and bring this home from the 1940s into 2019. It will be a fun design challenge to tie the old historical charm with the new modern design. I know our team is up to the challenge!
