With a full renovation this 1400 square foot one story bungalow in Virginia-Highland was transformed to create a brand new dwelling better suited to the owner’s lifestyle. The exterior meshes aesthetically with the neighborhood but the interior is more open, bright and modern than traditional bungalows. The reconfigured main floor offers better flow for living and entertaining with a folding metal door and porch overlooking the backyard for that indoor outdoor feel, and a new second story with master suite, two additional bedrooms and a playroom. Among the highlights is a minimal kitchen with warm gray marble countertops, custom shaker-style cabinetry, and high-end appliances including a 48-inch Bertazzoni range. The end result of this renovation is a home feels young, modern and comfortable with the versatility to shift from a family home to an entertaining space.
