This property was purchased by our client in the hopes that we could do enough magic to it that his wife would agree to leave their city home and move here for the six months of the year they weren’t in Florida. The view was spectacular but the house had been designed with all the bedrooms facing the lake, the living area the road. It was cold and dark with dingy little rooms. Our mandate was to turn the interior around to take advantage of the lake, make it spacious and airy with all living necessities on one level. The exterior was to be given much needed curb appeal. As the wife was quite sure she wasn’t going to like it, cost was critical. If they didn’t move in when the renovations were complete, the property would be put back on the market.
