5543 NORTH GLENWOOD AVENUE
Advise a local developer on the conversion of a two-family building to a single-family home that would maximize modern amenities and layouts, while retaining historic charm, to earn top dollar in the Andersonville neighborhood.
With abundant expertise in Andersonville, Rowland Group member Nick Theilig delivered a skill set in single-family homes the developer felt he lacked.
Nick was able to advise throughout the full gut renovation of the project to introduce a "wow factor" in terms of finishes and floor plans that would differentiate the home from those typically found in the area.
He advised on a "down to the brick" renovation of the two-family building that hadn't been updated in decades, including:
- Opening up the main floor layout and adding windows to the side and rear to maximize light and living space.
Selecting premium finishes in terms of hardwood flooring, countertops, stone and appliances.
Incorporating a second bedroom suite with a private bath, in addition to the master — a rarity in the Andersonville area.
Converting an unfinished basement to an expansive flexible rec room space with a wet bar.
Retaining and restoring coffered ceilings and original stained glass windows where possible and incorporating a historically appropriate and transitional design theme throughout.
Installing all-new electrical and plumbing, as well as CAT6 cable and integrated sound.
The Glenwood Avenue home set a new standard of style and luxury in the Andersonville neighborhood and earned an above-average price-per-square-foot sales price for the area.
