Ok, so what is with the name of this post. I didn't actually pick it, my client did. We are on project number 2 for them and the first project name was easy as it was Kumquat St. So Kumquat it was. This time the home remodel projext ended up on 136th Lane. Pretty boring name. This was gray to start out and did end that color too. My client had to travel to Paris for his primary occupation so the french twist came into to play.
Anyway, time to talk about the home. This home was another foreclosure in Andover. What attracted them to it was the maple and cherry hardwood floors on the 2 main levels. This home was in need of many finishing touches so that was the deal maker. They were able to negotiate a decent price with the bank and finally solidified the deal in January. Replacing the roof was the first order at hand and very obviously in need of one as there weren't even shingles in some spots.
Siding was debated as it was ok in some spots but really bad in others. Unable to match the original siding, new siding was ordered. Windows were still in good shape so they were left alone. Ceramic tile in the kitchen was in good shape but the cabinets were lacking and there was space for a breakfast nook. They added the breakfast nook and painted the existing cabinets white. New appliances were added as needed to finish the look.
The bathrooms had been started but left in disarray. New tile was added to the main bathroom and the master bath was reconfigured to have the door past the vanity. The door was in the middle of the bathroom before. They also added a 3rd bathroom just off the family room in the lower level. All new tile was set in the foyer and laundry room making for a grand entrance to the home. New carpet in the lower level completed the flooring and the home nicely. The hardhood floors were refinished to make the home spectacular.
New grass was planted in the backyard along with new railing and stairs to the deck. All this overlooks a pond framed in perfectly with 2 weeping willow trees in the corners. Shutters in the front completed the look with a small patio and nice landscaping. Be sure to stop by and see this home soon!
