Peek Inside This Gorgeous Grant Park Restoration

New, 11 comments



The charm and personality of a dilapidated 1905 Queen Anne bungalow on Oakland Avenue have been restored during a beautiful renovation by Carl Mattison Design and Round-Here Renovations, and the result is seriously impressive. Houzz.com provides details galore and inspiring photos of the 2,650-square-foot renovation, which included adding two bedrooms and two bathrooms in unused attic space, uncovering the original wood clapboard hiding under the home's vinyl siding and finding the original pine flooring beneath layers of linoleum. Designer Carl Mattison paid $175,000 for the property. After $205,000 in restoration costs, the turn-of-the-century four-bedroom, three-bath stunner sold for $550,000 at the end of March.

Three fleur-de-lis stained-glass transoms, two original pocket doors, and a 110-year-old washbasin original to the home were given new life during the project, as was a claw-foot tub salvaged from a Park Avenue home. The original diagonal fireplace also received a facelift and updated tiling. Designers added handsome wainscoting to the main hall, coffered ceilings in the living room and a roomy screened porch in the back. Here are a few images of the final product.
