Then and Now

This house merges fine craftsmanship with today's trends



This craftsman style home shows how combining different traditional features can create a really unique style. The home is an updated interpretation of the traditional craftsman style. Its distinctive vintage appeal complements today’s trends in materials, including modern detailing of stainless appliances, quartz countertops, and a cool color palate. In this beautiful Peninsula Neighborhood home, natural colored and distressed flooring complement each other aesthetically and continue the flow of light through the living areas. The warm colors of the flooring contrast with the cool paint colors and make a nice addition to this mixed bright, light toned rusticated style.








The home’s transitional design offers a pleasing blend of old and new, formal and informal, cozy living and open entertainment space. The open main-level living areas have a generous scale that creates a strong sense of place, where design continuity is elemental. Clean-lined wide trim references the contemporary as well as the traditional, accommodating interior design for a variety of lifestyles. The living areas are like a blank canvas, providing for a versatile layout of furnishings and easy flow between rooms. Plentiful light spills across open space through a large number of windows. The open kitchen, dining, and living areas lead to a convenient mudroom and bath at the back of the house. The farmhouse sink is a distinct feature of this modern Southland home. The home is further enhanced by the mixed materials and contrasting colors of the warm natural materials and cool color palate. With its traditional subway tile, this modern trend makes the home feel light and airy, and its grandeur is further enhanced by the elegant, open glass surround in the tiled shower. In this bold and inviting home we find a creative and effective blend of modern simplicity and traditional craftmanship.








The lower-level was designed for relaxation featuring a family room, bedroom and bath. The bedroom is ideal as a hobby room with a niche at the bottom of the stairs well suited for a future built-in cabinet or desk workspace. There is a niche below the stairs for storage or a playspace.




Accessory units over the garage are a unique and popular feature to the Peninsula Neighborhood. These spaces have their own entry, bathroom, bedroom, kitchen, furnace and air-conditioning. Carriage/guest house are popular as rental spaces and an income property.






This updated property with attractive spaces inside and out, including a large and very private patio, and it is ready for new owners with discriminating taste.




Here you are investing in a beautifully-conceived home in a popular neighborhood created to embody the good times and places of a small community of the past—but located conveniently near the burgeoning cultural amenities of downtown Iowa City.
