This little bungalow was is sad shape! Originally built in 1918, I’d classify this as a Folk Victorian. The neighborhood had gone through a period of being run down. Luckily, through the strong neighborhood association, and the Texas Landmark Commission, these historic homes have been taken back from the slum-lords and the whole neighborhood has been revitalized.
The interior had been destroyed by the previous owners, except for the window trims and the built in buffet. Really, everything was gone. So, I took this a blank slate, and gave it a whole new, modern-ish layout. I also added on space to the rear of the home, finished the attic and added a room over a new porte cochere. Of course, following National Standards for historic renovation, I kept all of the windows and doors in their original places, and saved whatever woodwork I could. I used modern vintage style finishes, especially in the bathrooms, for a timeless look. The decor carries the modern vintage theme all the way through.
