Yes, I know the beach and vacation (or stay-cation) seem to go together like peanut butter and jelly, but most of us who live in the Wilmington area take the area beaches for granted. From Topsail Beach (pronounced Top-sull, for our northern friends) all the way down to Oak Island, the beaches offer what everyone is searching for on a stay-cation, respite from a hectic day. It’s no secret that when you hit the beach chair with your favorite book, or even sit and watch the ocean, all your worries fade away.
If you’re planning a last minute summer get-away Orbitz named Wrightsville Beach a bargin in this article.
So tell us, which of our many beaches is your favorite escape?
Check out the renovation we are wrapping up at a three bedroom condominium at Wrightsville Beach. If there was a contest between the amazing view outside and the luxury appointments inside, I wonder who would win….
Recently we were hired to remodel outdated small plan for a client who purchased her home for it’s excellent location.
After transforming the plan into a home that would live better our subcontractors got to work. Even in the beginning stages, with the dust and mayhem of construction, the changes are amazing!
In our Previous Post: Remodel – What We Have To Work With we showed you pictures of the home as we found it before our team tackled the remodel project.
Unnecessary walls and hallways made the home feel closed in and smaller than it’s actual size. Our plan was to push back the dining room, move the kitchen to where the Family Room is currently, remove the wall separating the dining room from the kitchen as well as eliminate the hallway. The ceiling in the now open Great Room will be vaulted to create even more sense of space.
Bedroom 4 in the old plan is too close to the Master Bedroom and ruins any chance of privacy for the owner. We are turning it into a master closet to complete an true Master Suite, allowing us to enlarge the master bath. We will also add a gradual tray ceiling to the master bedroom to enhance the feel of elegance in the room.
The previous one car garage was truly not capable of parking a car, with the steps from the house in the way, so we are converting it to Bedroom 4 and adding a bath, perfect for a true guest suite.
To enhance the front of the home we will be adding a large entry porch.
Be sure to check back for pictures of our progress and let us know your thoughts!
Recently we received a call from Lisa Sledzik, a broker with Intracoastal Realty and the Vance Young Team. Lisa had sold a home in a much desired neighborhood to one of her clients in April. The client then hired someone to help her remodel the much dated home. Unfortunately, the remodel did not live up to her expectations and Lisa was recommending that we take over the job.
This is what we found when we began:
