As many of my regular readers know, my wife and I are planning on moving to Vancouver. I have been without a steady income for over a year now, and given the economic (and political) climate in the state, the job market doesn’t look good in the near or medium term. So we have made the tough decision to pack things in and get a fresh start back in Canada.
Before we can leave though, we need to sell out house. Remodeling this house has been a passion of ours for the past three years, and we are extremely happy with the results. I have included a description and a few photos below. If you, or any of your friends are looking for a great house in a cool neighborhood, please give my agent, John O’Hagan a call at 602.488.3655.
STUNNING mid-century modern remodel in Melrose area
849 W Campbell, Phx, 85013 (From 7th ave & Camelback head South to Campbell, West to home on South Side of the Street.)
This 3 bedroom/1.5 bath,1800 square foot ranch home was built in 1951 and completely renovated to mid-century modern perfection! This is an extraordinarily, REMODELED Ranch-style home in the heart of the Melrose District off 7th Avenue [ed. and close to light rail, Lux, America's Taco Shop and Copper Star Coffee!]
The modern kitchen was completely remodeled by Homework Remodels and features European-style, high gloss, white cabinetry, rich, cherry-stained butcher-block counters, Kraus Pull-Out spray faucet in modern chrome which compliments the two bowl zero radius (square) stainless under-mount sink. Sleek black appliances include refrigerator, range/oven and built-in stainless steel microwave oven and a built-in paneled dishwasher.
Both bathrooms have been completely remodeled and now feature Grohe sink & tub faucets and dark gray concrete countertops. The shower in the hall bathroom has a Hansgrohe overhead rain style showerhead, the frameless tempered glass enclosure surrounds custom size slate ‘tiles’ in the shower, a detail that is carried along the original-refinished cast iron/porcelain tub.
The entire home features concrete floors throughout and vaulted ceilings with exposed beams in the living room. The formal entry way still has the original redwood built-in bookcase/room divider and original redwood paneling can still be found in the formal dining room, both of which have been restored to perfection. With 3 bedrooms there is plenty of room for a guest room or even a home office and storage is not an issue. Each bedroom has ample storage and even more storage space is found in the hallway and full size laundry room.
This mid-century modern masterpiece has a timeless floor plan with a family room, living room and formal dining room that has been impeccably remodeled.
