For some time the team here at HVH have literally been craving a bungalow to design and renovate that has the design elements and features of this home such as…
– Huge corner lot
– 11 Foot Ceilings
– Oversized rooms
– Transom windows over the main windows
– A secondary structure
We are most EXCITED about the 11 foot ceilings… Ceilings that tall make for such dramatic spaces! But before explaining every aspect of the project take a detailed at the current condition of this property below…
After reviewing those pictures you may think we’re crazy in fact, we had several people ask if we were tearing this house down, LOL! We were offended that someone would tear down a GEM like this!
Obviously this home has endured many years of deferred maintenance having been vacant about 7 years, has multiple roof leaks, half demolished rooms, all broken windows and the siding is in pretty bad shape!
All of those things we look beyond to see the potential for this home…
We see a totally renovated and updated to modern standards, New Orleans Style Bungalow with all the architectural elements and details from 100 years ago when the home was originally designed and built. We will add some of the more modern features like a Pex Mani-bloc plumbing system which will allow for efficient water use throughout the home with almost zero maintenance. A tankless water heater will ensure an endless supply of hot water for those extended showers.
A Pro-Style gourmet kitchen outfitted with custom oversized shaker style cabinets, a huge working island and one or two goodies we can’t disclose right now but believe me
when I say this will be a kitchen unlike any other!
The goal is to create a home that’s truly an experience that takes your breath away and from all early indications I believe this home will that mark spot on! As an AirBNB rental I believe it will perform quite well for many years to come. Stay tuned in the coming months as we unveil this lovely New Orleans Style Bungalow!
