Roll Up Your Sleeves, Modernist Renovators!
For this month’s Modernist Home of the Month spotlight, we thought we’d shake things up a bit by highlighting some fixer-upper-style mod homes that would make for a great remodeling project during this time. This collection of approachable homes all over the Triangle is perfect for rejuvenating with modern styling to achieve the contemporary home you’ve always wanted.
This gutted building presents a great opportunity for a transformative rebuild. (See the neighboring property at 530 Spruce Street for inspiration to make this home worth $500,000+!) The property also features an outdoor patio overlooking the creek that would be perfect for entertaining friends or grilling with family.
This two-acre corner lot boasts two spacious loft-style sleeping areas on the second floor and an unfinished storage room with four-foot-wide doors that opens onto lush, wooded acreage. (“Tree Haven Drive” is aptly named!) The previous owner used the unfinished space above the garage as a wood-working shop which lends the opportunity for a studio, workout room, or whatever your heart desires. The roof was recently replaced but the rest of the home is in need of interior and exterior repairs.
If you’re looking for a large home that can house a lot of smiling faces, you’ve hit the jackpot! This property has four bedrooms, including two with their own full baths and a first-floor master that’s just begging for contemporary touches to really bring it to life. A semi-finished basement and workshop totals over 2,300 square feet, while the entire property sits on 1.5 acres. Located in the wonderful equestrian community of Black Horse Run, walking and horse trails, a swimming pool, tennis courts, and clubhouse will keep everyone entertained.
For the Less Adventurous Mod Buyer, Here Are Some Additional Properties That Are Ready to Call Home
This beautifully renovated home features a new water tank, luxury vinyl plank (LVP) floors, carpet, roof with a five-year labor warranty, and kitchen with pristine white shaker cabinets, granite, and stainless steel appliances. Updated baths and fresh paint throughout make this home feel brand new. There’s plenty of room for the whole family, what with a laundry room that could double as a home office, a first-floor master bedroom with a walk-in closet, and an attached space that could be used as a workshop or for storage. Not to mention gorgeous French doors that open to a new deck facing a wooded lot. Need we say more?!
A recently remodeled kitchen with new stainless steel appliances, cabinets, a deep stainless steel sink, smooth top range, and nickel retractable arm pot filler faucet makes this home irresistible for families that love cooking together at home. A large family room with skylights and a wood-burning fireplace are great for entertaining or family movie nights, while the master suite with a walk-in closet is the ideal oasis for tucking in after a long day. Enjoy morning coffee or dinner parties on the Juliet balcony that overlooks a sizeable open yard and offers your own privacy.
This one-of-a-kind mod home has been completely renovated with a contemporary kitchen, mudroom, family, and large windows that welcome the sun in every room and make you feel like you’re outdoors—while never stepping outside of the house! The rare design and 1,500 square feet of outdoor living space are must-sees.
