This late 1800’s home had once been the carriage home to a Dutch Colonial Craftsman home. With horse and buggies no longer needed, the carriage house was converted to a home in the 1920’s. The last updates done to the home had been in the 1960’s and the home felt disjointed and at odds with itself. When we first saw the home, it looked sorely outdated and any charm it once had was sadly lost to time.
The recent remodel was done to help recapture the charm this home once had and to find it’s place in our modern world. With original hardwood floors and wonderful high ceilings, the home found it’s new calling, a modern farmhouse. The black shaker kitchen cabinets and white marble counters help make the transformation a complete. Talk about a Cinderella story!
When staging we brought in some vintage pieces that tied into the homes 1920’s origins but also some contemporary pieces that helped accommodate today’s busy lifestyle. We wanted to help make this home appeal to families young and old, regardless of whether they couldn’t live in anything except a vintage home or for those families that couldn’t live without this home.
Never underestimate the beauty of vintage homes that refuse to be dated and written off. This modern farmhouse had me at hello.
