THE HARRIS HOME

This home was built in 1917 and has a spacious floor plan at just under 2,900 square feet.  Previously the home had been converted into a triplex with an apartment (or two) in the storage building behind the house so anywhere from three to five apartments were being used at any given point in time.  The previous owner had already begun the process of converting it back to a single family home by removing the walls that split the first floor in two and added stairs to the second story from inside rather than using the steel stairwell that ran along the side of the driveway.  So, when the Harris family purchased the home they had the team from MP Services continue in that effort while at the same time putting their own touches on the home to make it their own.  They wanted more of an open concept for entertaining than most old houses allow so we removed the walls on both sides of the middle hallway between the kitchen and the dining room.  We also used one of the back bedrooms to create a private master suite on the left side of the house.  The finished product gave them a 4 bedroom/ 3.5 bath with a great upstairs getaway for guests and down the road, their son.  The transformation of this home is truly remarkable given the condition just a couple of years ago and we hope the Harris family loves it for years to come!
