16 Jan A North Phoenix Remodel
Rosemonte: A North Phoenix Remodel
3 Beds | 2.5 Baths | 1,840+ SQFT
Now that we’ve officially handed off our latest remodel to its new owners, we are so excited to share all the hard work that went into this home!
This was a very extensive remodel. This North Phoenix home was straight from the 80’s when we found it, so it was ready for a good update from floor to ceiling. Once the home hit the market, we had accepted a contract on it within just a few days. We even closed a little earlier than planned, and are so happy to see this one off. See below for all the deets!
Today, we are starting from the outside – in, because I just LOVE this exterior before-and-after! This is the perfect example, to me, of the power of a fresh coat of paint.
We put a clean coat of white as the base, and a pretty charcoal grey for the trim. We removed the old screen door on the front, and even carried the grey trim color through the block wall in the back. This gave us such a clean, refreshed feel to this home. It almost felt like a Santa Barbara style home by the time we were done witih it – a far improvement from the blistered exterior from before!
Entry & Formal
This home had a great floor plan, with a split living area and sweeping ceilings. We made a fun little entry landing with our favorite harringbone brick tile, and then dressed up the two-sided fireplace that faced the formal and living rooms. For flooring, we brought through this large planked wood-tile in the main areas. This living area was framed by the staircase that leads to the second story, and I thought it was just so beautifully laid out.
Kitchen & Main Living
The kitchen needed a good clean up, but we loved the potential. There was a cute space for a breakfast bar and dinette, and opened to the family living area. This side of the fireplace came out to beautifully, with the stacked quartz and wrapped mantle!
Bonus Room & Additional Lower Level Spaces
Off the kitchen was a space that had been used as a sort of office space or den area. We converted this to a dining room, but this space is functional enough to be used as a flex space for many different uses. Off this area was the lower-level half-bath (very important for two-story homes!) and the laundry room.
Guest Rooms & Bath
Upstairs are two guest rooms and a guest bath, that all needed a good clean up. New carpet, paint and lighting in the rooms did wonders, and the guest bath came out super cute! Of course, there are many more details at play, here: floorboards and door trim were replaced, along with all the electrical plates.
The master suite had a major renovation, with major reconfiguration happening in the en suite bathroom as well as the closet space in the bedroom. The bathroom was straight up 80’s, with a very odd configuration and lots of wasted space. We were able to enclose a private toilet room, and expand the shower into a gorgeous, massive space. The vanities were totally overhauled, and we ended up with a great en suite. For the master bedroom, we blew out the closet to enlarge the space, and we added some canned lighting to help brighten the room.
We always pay attention to the back yards on our projects, to really round out the home. In this case, the pool had to be resurfaced with new pebbletec, and the patio needed a big clean up. Artificial grass was put in, and low-water plants were placed along the back wall. Once we were done here, the yard looked like an oasis!
It’s just so interesting to see before and after photos of these homes, because the “before” is so short lived. On day 1, demo begins, and from there it’s a lot of torn up floors and holes in the wall. But laying everything out on these posts give us such a sense of pride and reflection. This house looks completely different from when it came to us, and we learned so many lessons along the way during this remodel.
When the right buyer came along, she fell in love with the home. Not just because of all the special touches and pretty tiles, but also because of this gorgeous jade plant that Bryce picked up and placed by the door. Her middle name is Jade, and she felt like it was meant to be!
Big thanks to Stephen with Arizona Listing Pros for the before & after photos!
