This home, featured on the 2019 Westover Hills Home Tour set for Sunday (May 5 from 1 to 5 p.m.), shows what you can do with a mid-century 1952 rancher to create modern and spacious living. Renovations include adding 1,000 square feet, vaulting ceilings, taking out walls to create open living, and reconfiguring the kitchen. The décor is fun, bright, interesting, and reflects the owners’ worldwide travels. Highlights include a wall clock from the Black Forest in Germany, a painting of Asian ladies from Vietnam, a “Persian Pair” glass piece by Dale Chihuly, a barn door opening to the master bath using the original back door of the house, and a beautiful family secretary dating to the 1850s. Local art also hangs throughout the house. These owners also used their creative flare in totally transforming the outdoor living space.The back yard now boasts a large stone patio, bordered curved walls, raised vegetable beds, and a manicured green lawn surrounded by a large naturalized area. Also, to the envy of most city dwellers, the owners created a 3-car “parking pad” off the extended driveway to the rear of their property. Click here for home tour ticket info.
