Glenview Home

A Lake Front Residence

Glenview, Illinois

We were hired to create value in this flip home for a broker who purchased this home as a real estate investment.

The home had great bones yet the interior was extremely dated. We were able to make cosmetic upgrades in most of the house and completely rehab the kitchen and bathrooms on a very tight budget. We focused on the Master Bathroom and created a hospitality feel by adding in a beautiful free-standing tub, floor to ceiling tile, decorative mirror sconces and a natural woven rattan pendant.

We refinished the existing green shutters and garage doors and gray entry-way using rich contrasting graphite-black and white paint colors and used gold detailing around the entry-way wood trim.

The kitchen has a contemporary look with built-in appliances, beautiful quartz countertops, herringbone mosaic backsplash and decorative pendants.

We updated the lighting throughout and maintained the chandeliers in the entry way and common areas yet spray-painted the dated gold finish of the metal-work in black for a more Restoration Hardware high end look. 

We were able to completely revamped this dated home in record time and convert it into a beautiful contemporary residence.

 

The home sold for $350,000 more than the purchase price before it hit the open market, within a few months of closing.
