When the Murphys called us to discuss selling their home, we wanted to talk to them out of it. Not because we thought for one minute that their home wouldn’t sell, but because we didn’t want to see them go. This is our third transaction together and quite frankly, we think SunCrest is a better place with them here.
When the Murphys purchased this property, they recognized it needed a little tender loving care. On the day they got keys, they came armed and ready. I think I recall them showing up to closing with a sledgehammer and hard hats. Oh sure, lots of us have big plans to “knock down this wall” or “remodel that room,” but sometimes life gets busy and big plans get postponed. This wasn’t the case with the Murphys.
Immediately walking in the front door, the entry and living room ambience is now cozy, warm, and welcoming.
The exterior underwent a facelift that would make HGTV’s ‘Curb Appeal’ drool. The fence creates separation and defines the outdoor living space. The Murphys say they now spend countless hours on the deck enjoying nature and the unobstructed views. How can you not?
How about the mater suite remodel? The trendy and fashionable barn door compliments the homes fixtures and consistent design. The 4-piece bath with the (gigantic) tub is perfect for a relaxing soak after a long day. Bubble bath can negotiable with the sale.
The most dramatic changes happened in the kitchen and the family room. The decision to knock down the cut outs (tube tv’s were soooo early 2000’s), construct the wood beam, add distressed wood to the wall and accent the fireplace was spot on and caught us by surprise. The space is more open and creates a warm inviting gathering place that it lacked with the original design.
We think the before and after pictures speak for themselves. We’ve been fortunate to be a part of the process and see the dramatic changes. What’s that old adage, leave things better than you found them?
