What A Remodel…

By February 13, 2013

Capitol Hill, Houses, Interior Design

The new pictures of this recently renovated house near 21st and E. Pine (southeastern edge of Capitol Hill) give you a sense of the work that was done. Sleek, modern lines fill this 5-bedroom, 3000+ square foot home that date back to 1901.

But to really see the transformation, check out the photos from the previous listing, before the extensive renovation began. It’s pretty amazing. You can hardly recognize the previous incarnation. Inside or out.

It would be great to see the floor plan before and after to see what walls were torn down and how the different rooms were reconfigured.

Now, we haven’t visited the house in person so we can only judge the quality of the remodel based on the photos and the listing description. The house is listed for just shy of $850,000. It last sold for around $400,000. Did the developers double the value of this home? Will it get $850,000? It will be interesting to see the reaction.

The listing suggests the renovation was not only cosmetic but that the builders retrofitted the 1901 structure to make it certified Built Green & energy-efficient. The energy performance is said to be guaranteed by Green Canopy Homes.
