East Nashville is quickly evolving as developers move into this neighborhood, knocking down older homes on large lots to build two (or more) homes in their place. So you can imagine how excited we were to restore this charming beauty to times gone by. One of our favorite surprises during this renovation was the discovery of an original brick fireplace that would become part of the main living space. It’s a good day when things like that happen!
The main floor featured a cramped living, dining and kitchen space, so we extended the back of the house, creating a gourmet farmhouse kitchen with a large island. French doors open to the back porch, letting beautiful natural light into what will decidedly be the heart of this home. The farmhouse details are carried throughout the house in the exposed brick, corrugated tin & rich color palette. Outside, the dormer was replaced and enlarged, bring more natural light to the upstairs, the front porch was given a modern refresh and the tired siding replaced with brick-colored cerement board.
The future homeowners can choose between two master suites. On the first floor is a relaxed room with a vaulted ceiling and modern bath fixtures, including a soaker tub and glass-enclosed shower. Upstairs, the second master suite features cornflower blue walls and a clawfoot tub, creating a nostalgic feel.
