1021 Ramona Ave., Albany

Although this house now appears to be a historical beauty from the outside, it was in a shambles when we bought it- because of this condition the entire house is virtually brand new. Aside from the huge condition issues, the existing 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom did have a wonderful layout but allowed any wiggle room. We created more space by utilizing a downstairs utility area and with some further excavation below created more living space. An interior stairway was installed creating a split level layout to maximize the space, which now includes a sophisticated and private master suite on the ground floor. The split level also allowed us to create a strong connection from the main house to the sunny backyard. This is now a warm and inviting three bedroom two bath home with a seamless blend of traditional and modern style. The garden features an inviting deck and patio, and has convenient access to the kitchen for outdoor entertaining.
