A once just average-looking brick rowhome in Kensington has hit the market after undergoing a top-to-bottom renovation that brought back the property’s original character.
When this home at 2568 Memphis Street sold in April 2017, it wasn’t just so much a fixer-upper as just a property in need of a bit of a facelift. The design team behind Lux-Living then spent the next few months transforming the 2,200-square-foot home by exposing the home’s original brick and beams, as well as preserving original pine floors.
Two bedrooms were combined in the process and turned into a master bedroom. Today, the home includes three bedrooms and two full bathrooms.
“The newly installed finishes are very unique for a renovation as we tried to keep with the vibe of the retro-vintage feel,” says Kelly Straka of Lux-Living. “So things like a clawfoot tub, retro style tile, and industrial lighting make this house feel like it has a brand new midcentury modern feel.”
The home is on the market for $425,000. Check out it’s transformation in these before-after photos below.
