Remodeling the home built in 1983 was a labor of love for the current owners, who said they made no compromises when updating their residence.
“We’ve always strived for quality – we’ve never put a band-aid on things. We have rebuilt or replaced to be better than what was there before, ”they said. “We wanted to drive to our house and say with pride that this is OUR house.”
Hardwood floors and custom light fixtures are just two of the many special features that can be found throughout the home.
The kitchen is equipped with professional-grade appliances, including double ovens, a built-in refrigerator and a beverage cooler. It features multiple storage options and designer touches such as a tiled backsplash, two kitchen sinks and a massive L-shaped island, perfect for family dinners or meal prep.
The adjoining large room offers wonderful views to the outside and features a cozy stone fireplace, vaulted ceilings and well-located storage cupboards. It is adjoined by an office with integrated bookcases and a sunny living room which is lit by a large skylight and opens onto a terrace overlooking the backyard.
