Jb Constuction and Deb Seeley’s Tour client was 6 years old when her parents built this house in 1940. She grew up through the war years and remembers the family Victory Garden, complete with rabbits and chickens. The surrounding area was dairy pasture, now known as Gabriel Park. A dream surrounding for a young girl!
The family kept the house. And through the years it changed along with its surroundings
Fast forward to the present: Our client wished to create a master suite with an attached reading room, and to move the laundry out of the basement. Deb Seeley Designs was hired to create the new spaces and select materials to best fit their expectations. Jim Bruce and his team from JB Construction were tasked with turning it into reality.
Transformation began by capturing the wall of windows from one side of the old master bedroom, creating a beautifully lit hallway leading to the new addition. The hallway leads to the new reading room with a cathedral ceiling, built in his/her desks, and lots of windows that provide a wonderful view of their beautiful gardens. Large double sliding doors provide easy access to their beautiful deck. From the reading room, enter through French doors to the spacious master suite with cathedral ceiling. Separate walk-in closets, with built-ins for specific needs, such as a men’s shirt collection. There are separate vanities and a generous walk-in shower.
The large main floor laundry has custom cabinetry for front load washer/dryer and a built in ironing board. The space doubles as a garden potting room with a separate counter, sink bench.
A cozy den was created by capturing a former coat closet and part of the old living room. With double pocket doors for privacy, it is perfect for viewing sports.
