Moving on up!
This home has transitioned from a tired 1940’s bungalow into a modern three-level family home, and our clients couldn’t be happier! Originally an out-dated stucco-clad house, the transformation fits perfectly with the surrounding updated homes. The Westcoast Craftsman exterior with hardwood/hardi-board shakes appears warm and welcoming. Enlarged windows receive more light while retaining the original style. The upper floor addition, with its steep roof and gables, integrates seamlessly!
The family had outgrown the home and the extra floor plus the many other changes have literally improved their quality of life, giving space to entertain and live functionally! The stairs were moved to the outside which now access both basement and 2nd floor. We added a sitting room, guest bedroom, and reconfigured the bathroom to include a shower. The fireplace was removed, and a new gas fireplace re-situated to the front.
The new kitchen has been reconfigured and enlarged. An island and pantry were added for more storage options. The warm white clean-lined shaker style cabinets contrast nicely with the grey-toned island. White quartz countertop and backsplash tiles complete the look. Beautiful sliding French doors lessen noise levels between kitchen and living room, accented with transom glass allowing free flow of light throughout. Pot-lights were strategically positioned in the living room and kitchen. Contemporary pendant lights hang over the island and the dining table.
There is wide plank engineered hardwood flooring throughout, with tile in the bathrooms. Vinyl sheet tile was utilized in the basement and looks great, feels warm under foot and is a budget-saver!
