Go ahead and do a double-take of the before and after on another Wednesday “Wow”!  Then hop over to the blog and see how this new Airbnb rental celebrates its vintage charm!

The Kitchen Before…

20180316_155007

Like many historic properties, over the years, this home had been renovated for a multiple use building.  When our clients purchased the property, the majority of the space was being used as office space.  However, with a full kitchen, 2 baths, 3 bedrooms and a wonderful main large living area, the possibility of a historically inspired rental became the focus of this renovation.

Enjoying The Details In The New “Vintage” Kitchen

The interior design concept of the renovation was to marry crisp, new finishes with vintage elements mixed in.  The tin ceiling boast a manufacturing plants pulley light fixture and keyless sockets instead of the expected recessed can lighting in newer construction.

What could be more charming that this antique curio that houses all the glassware we might need for some serious entertaining.  After all,  Louisville is the place to be for Bourbon Trail experiences and the little horse race every 1st Saturday in May.

The Best Renovations Retain The Charm

What?  You don’t think this bathroom is charming?  Probably because the sink was out being cleaned up.  See more tin peeking out from under the new mirror?  Charming!

Plenty Of Large Space

Every inch of this large rental has been lovingly attended to in this renovation.  The bath above, although it looks tiny, actually has a full shower as well.  And this is the “second”  bath in the rental.  Yes, 2 full baths and 3 bedrooms all just waiting for the next guests to enjoy private spaces while being part of a group.

Side Tidbit:  Our clients traditionally like more color on the walls and in the decor of their properties.  With a little encouragement, because we only nudge and never push, you can see they took the leap of faith.  We are smiling like a proud mama at the results!

Middletown Manor Is The Perfect Home Away From Home!

“Pictures don’t do justice to the beautiful renovations done inside, it feels like you are living in your own upscale loft, and is much larger than you would expect.  The hosts have made sure to include all of the comforts of home, including an amazing kitchen stocked with every cooking dish you could need.  My friends that came with me couldn’t stop talking about the place the entire time.!” –testimonial

    1. It is always a joy to work with clients on projects with specific goals. The ceiling makes this Airbnb one to remember!

    1. Planning and implementation about 4 months. The owners did a lot of the work themselves!
