When creating this spec home in Altadore we wanted to push the envelope with the design features that were used. Sleek built-on-site cabinetry was accented with open shelving, quartz counters, & white tile with dark grout. The use of antique brass faucets, lighting, and hardware gave the space an elegant fashion forward touch.

The open concept floor plan was designed to create a modern living space that would meet the needs of young families & professionals. 10’ & 11’ ceilings on the main level & vaulted ceilings throughout the upper level of the home allowed for oversized windows & doors giving this space a larger than life feel. Features such as the custom walls in the ½ bath & office made this home stand out from others on the market resulting in multiple offers when it was listed.

This home was designed and built by Veranda Estate Homes in the inner city community of Altadore in 2012.
