128 S Potomac

This house is probably one of my favorites to date!  It’s located steps away from beautiful Patterson Park near Canton in Baltimore city.  We put a two story roof deck on for maximum city views and hosting party pleasure.  And there’s 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a beautiful kitchen with lots of storage and a large island!  Plus it’s a historical renovation so we kept all the beautiful window transoms, some original tile and original hardware floors.  Everything new we added to have the same period feel of this 100+ year old row-home.  It’s a gorgeous transformation and I just love seeing my visions come to fruition.  Someone is going to be really happy in this home for hopefully a long time!  Here’s some before and after pictures:

Exterior:  Left is before picture, right is after custom door, tore down the old bay window siding and installed custom picture frame molding, replaced light, house numbers and mailbox.

Kitchen: All new cabinets, contrast island painted in Benjamin Moore Hale Navy, brass hardware, globe pendants, chevron back-splash, quartz countertops, refinished hardwood floors and new appliances.

Bathrooms (2 of 3 shown): The upstairs had one very stinky, very dated bathroom, we tore it out and in it’s “place” put in two beautiful bathrooms so that the master bedroom would have an en suite and then there would be a bathroom in the hallway too.

Living room/dining room: We refinished hardwood floors, took out awful drop ceiling and installed gorgeous tray ceilings, exposed and cleaned up brick and painted Benjamin Moore Stonington Gray.

Guys, these transformations never get old!  Anyone else love a good before and after story?  I’m sharing our latest project, a whole house renovation in the Patterson Park neighborhood of Baltimore city.  What this house lacks in square footage it has in charm!  The exterior is gorgeous – we had to remove the awnings, take down the form stone, the brick underneath was repointed, we replaced the windows, replaced the door and painted it Bold Blue by Benjamin Moore, updated the light fixture and repaired the corbel.  See before and after pics:

The rest of the house was transformed as well, hardwood floors refinished, more brick repointed, new stairs and railings, drywall, light fixtures, new interior windows, new kitchen, granite counters, new bathrooms (3 full baths).  Check out all the before and after pics here side by side so you get a real feel for the transformed spaces:

Since this wasn’t a large house I used the same paint color through-out, Agreeable Gray by Sherwin Williams and trim is White Dove by Benjamin Moore.  Floor stain is dark walnut.  Here are some bathroom pictures:

Ready to tackle the next project, thanks for stopping by!

416 Lehigh

This week we wrapped up a gorgeous row home on South Lehigh Street in the great city of Baltimore.  This house is such a labor of love that I will be almost sad to see it go but excited for whomever ends up buying this beauty.  The condition of this house when we purchased it was bad to say the least, it was run-down, partly torn down and abandoned…and we swooped in and restored it!  We took down so much plaster and re-pointed the brick and it turned out so nice, the brick almost looks brand-new.  The kitchen is huge, especially for a small row-house in the city with a 7′ island!  I could go on because of course I love everything we designed and built but instead I’ll share some of the amazing before and after pictures with you:

Here’s a recent renovation property we flipped, it’s a 3 bedroom, 2 bath rowhome in Baltimore.  Originally only a 2 bedroom and one bath home so we added a full bath as well as a third bathroom.  This house had gorgeous pine floors that just needed to be touched up and refinished, it also had pretty exposed beams that we decided to leave exposed.  Keeping with those finishes, we decided to do a decorative tin ceiling in the kitchen which I think turned out gorgeous and we used a tile flooring in the kitchen that looks like rustic wood.  Overall, the home has a modern-industrial feel and I just love the way it turned out.

Kitchen prior to renovation but was already gutted by the time I got the picture:

Baltimore row house reno – Lehigh

Another completed project!  This row home has so much natural light and is quite spacious considering some Baltimore row homes can be narrow.  I love how open this house is and how large the kitchen is!  The room off the back is an added bonus for a mudroom.  Here’s some of the before and after photos on this gorgeous row home.

Before (obviously):

And now completed and under contract:
