This 1922 historical home in Meridian Kessler was ready for a few updates that remained true to its original elegant charm while including modern amenities and finishes. The entire home from top to bottom received a freshening up for an updated twist on its past, as well as deferred and needed maintenance throughout the home.
Among the areas we remodeled was the back staircase. We took the original front staircase details and mimicked them for the smaller scale of the rear stairs, again to return as many details as possible to the original age of this home. Throughout the home we patched, repaired, and refinished the original hardwoods. The dining room was refurbished including fixing the original tracks and hardware of 2 sets of pocket doors, while a fresh coat of paint and a new chandelier complete this room. The living room and den just needed a fresh coat of paint, and the existing fireplace received a good cleaning. A small bedroom received maintenance of built-in cabinets and a fresh coat of paint. In the basement we did a major clean and paint of the space and added doors and a wall to separate the mechanical room. New carpet and painting of the walls and ceiling makes this now a finished and functional space as a playroom, home office or work out area.
The finished renovation restores this beautiful home to its original aesthetic while maintaining the historical details. It is a stunning blend of history and modern style with improved functionality for today’s family.
