This lovely century-old home sits on a beautiful street near downtown Birmingham. A proper exterior update elevated the home’s existing architecture. A rear two-story addition gave this family the extra space desired for their active family. A new rear porch now opens to a huge mudroom filled with custom built-ins. Stepping from the mudroom right into the butler’s pantry (created from antique cabinetry doors), the addition includes a breakfast nook and sitting room/office for a work-from-home environment.
The new 2nd-floor addition adds so much space to the master suite. A new master bath with an extra-large walk-in shower and gorgeous oversized custom furniture grade double vanity sits right outside a brand new home gym. The envy of all their friends, there is room in this cathedral, window-covered space for the whole family to work out together. Yoga, weights, and a turn on the treadmill are just a few ways they all stay in shape.
The rear addition was just the start of the whole new exterior of this old house. The traditionally designed covered front porch adds the perfect architectural dimension to the front façade. A new stone fireplace, sunroom railing, luxurious copper roofing, gutters, and details are the keys to the missing details. The whole house and garage bear brand new James Hardie Dream Collection siding and custom shutters. This old beauty is ready for another 100 years!
