We are excited to share the next phase of the renovation in Foxcroft. When we last left you, Winnie Simmons and her client, Stuart Hicks, were turning this existing 5 bedroom, 2.5 baths, 2 car garage into a new 6 bedroom, 4.5 baths and 3 car garage home. This includes an addition of a new master suite, additional garage bay, mudroom/laundry room and a big beautiful deck with a large brick fireplace overlooking the wooded lot and walking trails.
The client, Stuart Hicks, wanted to create an open concept kitchen and living area. This was achieved by taking down walls and creating a walk out onto a new wrap around deck with an outdoor fireplace. He then added new french doors opening onto the deck.
Next they decided that the existing home needed a full demo of all existing baths and kitchen. We added two new baths which includes the master bathroom. It was important to us to use all custom cabinets, marble, natural stone, high end tile and hardwood flooring throughout the home. The home has all new lighting and hardware throughout. We renovated the front elevation by adding a new front door, shutters, front porch and clap board. The new addition is full brick veneer.
“I’m not really sure if it’s a service or a joy helping my client’s with: design, tile colors, hardware, counter tops and cabinetry” said Winnie. “I was a designer and an investor myself from 1994 – 2007 and have been a broker since 2009.” She began her real estate business in Nantucket, MA and Greenwich, CT and relocated back to her home state of North Carolina and Charlotte in 2004.
“The success of my clients, working with them through the entire process is one of my favorite aspects of my business. I love the hunt for the buy and identifying a property that will be a successful investment – it is a real honor to be part of my client’s team”.
After the renovation is completed, Winnie will put back on her real estate hat and market and sell the property, the Dickens Mitchener way. Stay tuned for the final reveal.
