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.

Be sure to check out 5216 Caledonia on the 2019 Westover Hills Home Tour, May 5 from 1 to 5 p.m. This craftsman home built in 2014 is the perfect marriage of Westover Hills charm and modern conveniences, including large closets, an upstairs laundry, 10-foot ceilings, and an open and spacious downstairs that is perfect for entertaining. The charm is accentuated by beautiful interior design and furnishings, orchestrated by the homeowner herself, an interior decorator and owner of Leah Walder Interiors. With an exceptional creative and artistic eye, she has transformed discarded pieces of yesterday (featuring items found at Habitat ReStore, Goodwill, and on Craigslist), and incorporated them into a beautiful, warm, and aesthetic look and feel in every room. The owner’s love for reinvention extends to the exterior, landscaped beautifully with an assortment of plants and shrubs acquired from friends and neighbors. This may be the first time on tour for these homeowners, but it is not their first home in the neighborhood.
