When we started this project over a year ago, we knew that it wasn’t going to be a typical “flip house”. We wanted to totally transform it and make it something truly special. So that’s what we did! Increasing the roof pitch, vaulting the ceiling in the kitchen, and adding over 1300 finished square footage was just a few things we did to make our vision a reality.
Even though we still have a few things to do before the house is 100% complete, we are so excited to be at the end of this journey. And we couldn’t be happier with the way it turned out. Now it’s time to find a family for this home!
Details and List Price
Before I show you more of the house, here are the basic details and the list price:
3700 sq ft

We gave the exterior of the home a complete make-over. As mentioned above, this included increasing the roof pitch which helped bring the house out of the ’70s and make the design timeless. This change meant a need for a lot of new brick in several places. We also added all-new fiber cement siding to the cantilevered second story, dormers, and a couple of other areas, as well as fiber cement soffit everywhere. The entire exterior was painted in Benjamin Moore White Dove.
We replaced all of the existing windows with Windsor aluminum-clad wood widows with SDLs for a cleaner look. We chose Owens Corning Driftwood shingles and added a bronze standing seam metal roof over the front porch. And the 6″ bronze guttering with round downspouts added just the right amount of contrast to the exterior.
In an effort to create a timeless style for the exterior, we also added functional wood shutters painted in Sherwin Williams Agreeable Gray and corbels underneath the cantilevered second floor.
We completely opened up this kitchen, which included changing the ceiling height from 8ft to 14ft vaulted, and removing two walls. This allowed us to add a large island and wood beams.
This kitchen is my favorite room in the house. It has Calacatta Maximus Quartz countertops from Caesarstone which are fully utilized on the full height backsplash and waterfall island.
To add some warmth to the kitchen, we incorporated some white oak elements in the form of a custom-made paneled refrigerator, floating shelves, and the back side of the island.
And the centerpiece of the kitchen is the stainless and brass dual fuel Ilve range.
We were also able to add a large butler’s pantry which includes plenty of cabinets, an under-counter microwave, and a second refrigerator.
Connected to the kitchen is a cozy room with a gas fireplace.
New Main Level Addition
The original house was lacking a main-level master suite. So we extended off the back of the house, adding over 700 sq ft. The addition includes the following: hallway, half bath, laundry room, master bedroom, master bath, large master closet, and covered porch.
The master bedroom features hardwood floors and a 12 ft vaulted ceiling with wood beams.
The master bathroom has a marble mosaic tile floor that extends seamlessly into the large shower.
We also custom-built two 36″ white oak vanities for the master bath.
In the living room, we added custom built-ins and interior windows to let more natural light flow through the house. We also added new custom-made black metal handrails to both staircases.
The second floor of the home has 3 large bedrooms, two bathrooms, and plenty of closets. Two of the bedrooms have hardwood and one has new carpet. We ran out of time when we were taking photos, so we didn’t get to take any of the upstairs bedrooms. But we’ll be adding those soon.
Increasing the roof pitch of the garage allowed us to add a large bonus room with 3 windows and a large closet for extra storage.
