Tour Tuesday - Holladay Kitchen Miracle

I just listed a fabulous house in Holladay. It is a classic red brick rambler on a cul de sac and it backs up to a church, so the backyard is totally private. When the homeowners first called me about selling the house I looked at the photos on the MLS from when they bought the home. It was cute, but dated. The homeowners told me they had remodeled the kitchen so I was expected some improvement but I was not expecting what I saw...it was more of a miracle than a remodel.

This is the kitchen before:

The homeowners wanted to open up the kitchen, add an eat in bar and desk area, all without changing the footprint of the house. That is a tall order, but they pulled it off with A LOT of style. Here is what they came up with:

They incorporated this huge island so that there would be plenty of prep area and in kitchen seating.

They loved the look of carrarra marble but they felt like the soft stone was too high maintenance for their counters so they used a slab of the marble in the backsplash. I LOVE it.

Finally, they wanted to include a workstation - which I think fits in seamlessly.

They also did a remodel on the dining room/family room. Here is what it looked like before:

And here is the after:

There are three bedrooms on the main and all of them have huge closets and the basement has tall ceilings, both unusual for a house this age. It is a great home, looking for a great new owner - let me know if that is you!
