Renovated Railroad Depot
It’s hard to believe this newly refurbished home was once a decrepit railroad depot. Still, upon first observing this ultra modern beautiful space you can see some resemblance of times gone by. Though the old building mystique is still there, it has been transformed into something functional and exquisite.
Edifices with intriguing pasts always catch our interest, especially converted homes that were once something completely different like an airplane or a shipping container! This loft style home has soaring ceilings, exposed brick, and impressive details. The elegant industrial vibe is solid and resonates throughout the edifice.The space is magnanimous and filled with sensitivity, purpose, and all things that make a home comfortable and pleasant.
The first floor space is filled with cushioned seating situated within neutral dark hues and organic materials. Exposed brick caresses the entire setting. Unlike some spaces that create just one wall with exposed brick, this home has the rugged red bricks (and in some places white) on multiple walls. The bricks contrasts beautifully with the comfortable plush ambiance. The floor is a dark neutral shade stone floor embossed with a trendy finish creating endless character, warmth, and texture.
The country style kitchen is rich with personality. The gas stove adds a down-home ambiance. The green elaborately decorated backsplash tiles are amazing together with century old utensils that give the kitchen a solid quality. It’s for cooking, eating, laughter, entertaining, and enjoying family. A narrow door is the exit to a beautiful landscape and natural view. It’s a laid back style of living that contributes to well being.
Though this home looks magnificent, conversions do not come without their challenges. Industrial buildings are designed differently from the average home and plumbing, windows, and wall placements can certainly test homeowners and interior designers patience. The broad layout that frequently make spaces so attractive can be hard to manipulate. Surprises always pop-up that can make expenses difficult to predict.
The interior design of this dwelling was certainly no less of a challenge. From flooring to furnishings, the finished product was certainly worth the temporary stress. Bedrooms are simple and basic with touches of varying hues. The bathroom incorporates some of the most stunning tiles you will ever lay your eyes on. The exterior space is equally wonderful. Huge well manicured grounds are a pleasure to take in from the kitchen area. Room for play has not been forgotten either. A solid dark wood pool table upstairs emits a relaxed vibe.
