When I saw this home hit the market I was pretty excited. But then I remembered I sadly don’t have millions of dollars to buy up all the homes I want to remodel! Why?! I may not be in the market for a new project house, but maybe you are? Check out the potential in this one… give me a call and let’s set up a showing.
I love the dark and moody exterior. And I really love the board and batten siding. I’m sure I’ve mentioned this before, but that’s my favorite part of our homes exterior. If I could go back in time, I’d do our entire exterior in board and batten.
Give it a fresh coat of black stain and use natural wood on the new deck and front door.
If black is not your favorite… go for a deep green. Black windows and roof.
I’m not mad at this pretty oak door!
Go bold with your new entry lighting. Modernize the railing.
Keep the original slate flooring. Pull colors from the slate to sprinkle throughout the rest of the home. Rusts, creamy whites, deep greens and grey.
The ceilings are freaking amazing. I would just have the entire interior sprayed white, including the ceilings.
Do some new matte oak flooring. Go a bit lighter if you’re a risk taker… kids will not be kind to super light floors. Sigh!
Keep the interior modern and natural. With collected and masculine décor.
Give the fireplace a tiny makeover with paint.
The wall separating the kitchen and living doesn’t appear to be load bearing. Tear that b down!
Taking down the wall allows you rearrange your kitchen. Add a large island and open shelving.
Although, if you go for the green exterior, for sure go with green cabinets. Like this…
Add a casual round table and a new statement light fixture in the dining.
I know it’s a lot of work, but all the square ceiling tiles have got to go. Do not buy this house if you don’t have Sheetrocking skills or the money to hire a pro.
Ditch the crystal chandeliers. This is not the house for that.
New sheetrock, low pile carpet, floor to ceiling sheer curtains, comfy couch, oversized art. Done!
You might actually be able to rework the laundry room to fit a lower level toilet. Like so..
The Listing mentions the deck is dangerous. Tear it down, start over, but keep the original design. I love the bench railing!
The yard is rather large (.64 acres) so there is plenty of room for a garden.
And maybe a chicken coop- Perks of living right outside the city limits!
*Home is active on the market at the time of this post. If you read this at a later date, the home may be sold or off the market. Contact me to for more information or to find a similar home. All opinions are my own. And of course, there is nothing wrong with this house as it is.. I just got inspired to show what I would do.
