Understated luxury.

Our clients purchased this 1996 Bethany home sight unseen. The goal was to remodel the home to make it more family-friendly. Now with lighter floors, a creamy wall color, and a mix of painted cabinets with white oak accents, the 1996 traditional home in Bethany has a fresh feel. The remodel touched many spaces from the front door through the great room, kitchen, dining room, and upstairs to renovate the hall bath, guest bath, and primary bathroom.
