Falls Church City Remodel
We remodeled this 1950s ranch home in Falls Church City building two one-story additions and transforming the interior space to better fit our client's needs.
We constructed a new one-story addition over a conditioned crawl space running the length of the rear of the house and a separate one-story side addition to accommodate a new office space. The kitchen was relocated to the the new addition, freeing up the previous kitchen area for a new configuration that now includes a mudroom, laundry, powder room, and pantry. This corridor is trimmed out in nickel gap paneling and can be closed off from the formal living areas with a new pocket door. The newly designed kitchen has base cabinetry with a white Carrara marble countertop, but no upper cabinets except for the range hood, allowing for more windows and natural light. A sliding barn door conceals the large pantry from the main kitchen. We moved the living room to the new addition with the kitchen to create a more open concept. The area where the living room was previously is now a formal dining room. The new addition also has a new primary suite area with closets and a primary bathroom. We installed new white oak hardwood flooring in the new spaces to match the existing home and remodeled the guest bathroom.
The thoughtful addition of space, interior improvements, and client's interior design and decor have made a dramatic difference for the home.
