So you have found a beautiful older turn of the century home filled with antiques and charm. The home is perfect or perhaps not so at all. Older homes have sometimes a habit of swapping owners at various times of home remodeling fads. It should be key to be able to notice poor designs or additions to homes before a purchase. Not doing the homework may result in costly repairs and even at times gutting an old home to bring back its charm from years past.
- With 30 years of finding homes for other people under her belt, a professional home finder discovered her own find.
- While beautiful, the found Victorian property had a poorly designed kitchen that needed gutting.
- The new owner created a bespoke, Shaker-style kitchen, nixing the original beams and overly ornate lines.
