Inspired by the New Orleans Garden District, the husband-and-wife design duo performed extensive work to restore the home to its original glory (he is an architect and project manager, and she is a talented interior designer). The downstairs living spaces were taken to the studs and respace-planned to create a more modern floorplan yet in keeping with the original architectural intent. Here you will find an inviting foyer, formal living and dining rooms, an elegant fireplace, a lovely parlor with lacquered bookcases (parlor may be used as a den, study or TV room), a sizeable eat-in kitchen, a stylish powder bath, a spacious master suite, and new window coverings throughout the home. The kitchen features a Bertazzoni Italian range with 5 gas burners and custom vent hood, marble countertops and center island, designer backsplash, stainless steel appliances, abundant cabinetry, two pantries and an efficient laundry/utility closet, new hardware, lighting and plumbing fixtures. The downstairs master suite (a rare find) features a warm fireplace, new lighting, his/her closets and a newly renovated master bathroom. Similarly, the upstairs floorplan was respaced to create a loft-style game room, three bedrooms and two baths. Each bedroom features large closets with built-ins and many designer touches. Enjoy breezy evenings and long views from the upstairs balcony. Enjoy back yard living on the refurbished deck and host your out-of-town guests in the modernized casita with full bath and loft. Foundation warranty, newer furnace & ductwork.
