2018 Homes

1060 Rosedale Drive1 – 1060 Rosedale Drive
When the current owners purchased this 1910 craftsman in 2005, it needed quite a bit of polishing to become the beautiful home it is today. The initial renovation fixed basics such as caving in ceilings, rotted exterior shingles, crumbling plaster, and broken windows, as well as widening the center hall for new stairs and a powder room underneath. The new stairs enabled them to add three bedrooms and two baths to the second floor while retaining the home’s original footprint. In 2014, the owners decided the house needed a larger family room and extended the home with a two-story addition, which enlarged the small sitting room by fourteen feet on the first floor and provided space for a second master suite on the second.

1092 Rosedale Drive2-1092 Rosedale Drive
The current homeowners lived in this 1930 bungalow for almost ten years before embarking on a 2016 renovation with Phoenix Renovations so the home could meet the needs of their growing family. Over half of the first floor was gutted to create spacious open family room and kitchen areas. A new second floor provided much needed space for three bedrooms and two bathrooms, including a serene master suite. Special attention was paid in order to highlight the home’s historic features and to create the new spaces so they blended seamlessly with the original areas of the home.

1015 N Virginia Avenue3 – 1015 N Virginia Avenue
This semi-Tudor style bungalow, built in 1923, has been a labor of love for its owners since they bought it in 1986. Originally a 3/1, it has been altered over the last 32 years to include a basement, a foyer, pool, and garage, as well as raising the roof—all while maintaining the original footprint of the house. Several walls were eliminated in the living room to create an open view to the covered patio, and the two side porches were enclosed. The master suite is a particularly special part of the home, with its morning porch and his-and-hers bathrooms and closets. Architectural elements that were removed over the years have been re-purposed throughout the home. The owners used the woodworking shop in the basement to do most of the interior finishes themselves.

1025 N Virginia Avenue4 – 1025 N Virginia Avenue
This 1929 craftsman home, with its expansive and welcoming front porch, looks classic on the outside, but a 2016 renovation totally transformed the home for modern living. Moving the original fireplace to the back den, allowed for a spacious first-floor master suite. Relocating the kitchen, bathroom, and stairway completed the first floor connectivity for open spaces. The upstairs space was reconfigured to create private bedrooms and bathrooms. One look at the screened back porch addition tells you it’s a favorite spot for outdoor dining and relaxing in front of a second fireplace. Downstairs, the basement has been updated and expanded to contain both a secluded office space and private guest suite.

 

910 Virginia Ave5 – 910 Virginia Avenue
A delightful front garden welcomes you to this classic 1919 “shotgun” California craftsman bungalow. The original layout of the home is still intact, save for a rear addition completed by a previous owner to accommodate a sunroom, newly redesigned master bathroom, and master closet. The current owner purchased the home in 2008 and has since converted the laundry room into a full bathroom, redesigned the master bath to be an age in place/accessible-ready shower room and renovated the kitchen, which included restoring the original built-in cabinets, matching and merging the old and new. The built-in cabinet restoration project, along with many others throughout the home, showcase the homeowner’s personal sweat equity, patience, and appreciation for historic preservation.

1005 Adair Avenue6 – 1005 Adair Avenue
You’ll thoroughly enjoy this craftsman bungalow built in 1913. The current owner purchased the home in 1993 and has incorporated shades of her home state of Florida in the brightly colored interior decor. While the kitchen and two bathrooms were renovated, many of the original details in the home have been retained: three non-functional fire places, leaded glass cabinet doors and picture rail in the living room, pocket doors separating the living and dining room, and a pair of French doors connecting the living room to a picturesque front porch. Additions included a new master suite with vaulted ceilings, which utilized an existing bedroom/sleeping porch to create the master bathroom and closet.

 

932 North Highland7 – 932 N Highland Avenue
Built in 1920, this American foursquare home is just one block from the heart of Virginia-Highland. Its picturesque front porch provides an ideal spot to relax and watch the neighborhood go by. Previous owners completed a renovation in 2006; expanding the first floor to add a new kitchen that opens into a large keeping room and screened-in porch. A master suite was also added on the second floor. While the renovations provide a modern touch, the home has retained its historical character and a number of its original features, including beveled glass windows, parquet and pine floors, and two sets of pocket doors. The artwork hung by the current owners reflects this fusion of old and new, combining pieces from the 1800s with those from contemporary and local artists.
