We found this 1915 house deep in Church hill. Its charm can be seen in its unique exterior and rich interior, making for an enjoyable renovation the whole way through. Over 6 months we patched this 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom home and painted it an Iron Mountain Grey.
As soon as you walk in you're hit with rich traditional craftsmanship. Usually we paint over or take down existing trim but this house came with beautiful wainscoting so we decided to stain all of it to keep distinct integrity intact.
The interior of the house is painted Mindful Grey and restored original pine hardwood floors lie throughout- which were in great shape except for the the master bedroom. We had to rip up the entire floor to raise it from slanting, then all put back down.
We were lucky to have most of the original detail woodwork in good condition. The fireplace was so unique, and in almost perfect condition- except for three missing tiles. Our perfectionistic tendencies took over to the point that we had to send a squad on a hunt for them. They ended up digging through five different salvage yards to find them- and they did!
We gave the cozy kitchen shaker cabinets, white subway tiles, butcher block counters, and a farmhouse sink.
This house proved that no matter where a home is, people will choose a tailored, re-purposed, thoughtful home over location. We had 130 people show up to the open house and it sold day one. It really is a testament to what our buyers want in the market place- a true Craftsman, not a paint-by-number flip.
