Walking into this split-level home was like walking back in time, the 1960’s to be exact. It was in desperate need of an update with its dark paneling in the small family room, eight-foot ceilings, gold shag carpeting throughout the bedrooms and staircases, and original kitchen and bathroom cabinets and countertops. The family was also clearly in need of more storage and space to entertain.
The outside also needed some TLC and some outdoor entertaining space. The front door had no porch to get out of the weather.
The entire home was renovated, inside and out. New Hardiplank siding was installed on the entire house and painted, a new roof was installed on the entire home including the family room expansion and new screened porch. Also replaced were the windows, doors, garage door, and gutters. A new front porch, rear screened porch, and patio were added The unfinished garage was finished. A 100’ retaining wall was installed to alleviate existing water drainage issues.
Inside, a bath and half bath were added, the laundry room was relocated, the kitchen was opened up to the living space, the family room was vaulted and expanded, all of the ceilings on the main floor were raised to 9 feet. The electrical and plumbing were completely revamped in the entire home. All the interior doors were replaced, new hardwood floors were installed in the entire main floor and stairs, and new carpet was installed in the bedrooms. The brick fireplace was updated with new stone veneer to the ceiling, new hearth, tile surround, and wood mantle. The kitchen was gutted and redesigned and now has beautiful new Wellborn cabinets and granite countertops with a more functional and open layout. All the existing bathrooms were gutted and updated with new tile, cabinets, countertops, hardware, lighting and plumbing fixtures. The entire home was repainted on the inside.
The finished home speaks for itself both inside and out. It feels like a brand new home, and now the adult kids and grandkids fight over who gets to stay at the house when visiting.
