This 2500 SF home was flipped about 6 years before our client purchased it, and while the aesthetics weren’t bad, there were functional issues. For example, the kitchen, with pretty views of the backyard, had no backyard access, and the laundry room was awkwardly located between the living and dining room. The major hurdle, though, is the need for a second master suite on the ground floor.
Our client’s mom had recently moved in and while she is agile and able to utilize an upstairs bedroom now, they wanted to be sure that she could age in place at home for years to come. That meant reworking the downstairs layout to create a junior master suite downstairs. The trick – how to make a home where someone can age in place without it looking like you were designing it that way.
We updated this home from top to bottom, aesthetically and functionally, to create a beautifully classic home that is also very sneakily set up for any future aging in place needs. The house now has a far better setup for daily living and entertaining, plus has some fun surprises.
