Okay guys, today’s Friday Featured Flip is great. I mean, really, really great. This flip strikes the perfect balance between making the house super, high design while also being neutral enough to appeal to a large number of people. Added bonus is that we’ve seen these flipper’s work before…
After I featured this flip and then did a liiiittttle bit of stalking, I found their instagram account. And, because we all know there’s no shame in my game, I started following them. They’ve been teasing me with this property for a couple of weeks now and then they finally listed it. And that is how this pretty lady on Blake came to be this week’s Friday’s Featured Flip.
This house is a little outside my usual flip-talking territory but I am familiar with the City generally and this neighborhood somewhat. But I’m not going to comment on either because I have heart eyes for these flippers and want you to follow the link to the listing so you can pass it along to everyone you know and we can get this thing sold for them ASAP. If you follow the link you’ll be able to see exactly where this house is and can judge the neighborhood and guess who the buyers might be. If I had to guess, I’d say the buyers will be a family with grade school-aged kids and that this will be their second home.
I’m so excited to show you this home I’m just going to jump into the pictures. Enjoy!
As you can see this house was a hot-mess before. Alas, I only have pictures of the outside but given how dire the outside looked it’s probably safe to assume the inside was tragic.
Living room: after
Dining Room: after
This little space is off the dining room — you can see it to the right of the dining table in the picture above.
This kitchen is crazy good. There’s not one thing not to love: cabinet color is great; back splash is legit; and the tile on the island front is pure genius because it’s the perfect way to introduce a bold pattern so you can see it but not be overwhelmed by it. #bossmove
Family Room: after
This room is off the kitchen. I love how they carried the cabinets into this space and how it opens out onto the backyard.
This picture makes me want to sing the Guns ‘n Rose’s song Welcome to the Jungle “…we got fun and games. We got everything you want, honey we know the naaaames. We are the peeeeople that can find whateeeever you may neeeed….” Okay, sorry. Thanks for letting me work through that.
There’s so much to like about this backyard: the deck and the wide steps down, the little shed and the trees along the fence.
Let’s head back inside and go upstairs
Check out the ceiling…the geometry that it must have taken to execute this so well makes my head hurt…but it is one of the coolest takes on shiplap I’ve ever seen.
Here’s another picture of the ceiling. I think this picture was included just to show off the ceiling because the bedroom looks tiny in it. I can’t blame them for wanting to show off that ceiling.
Off of the master is a little sunporch. The ceiling is also paneled but, here, I think it’s original.
Now we head to my favorite rooms in this house. All the bathrooms, especially the powder, half-bath, are so interesting and cool — these are not your standard boring flip bathrooms.
BOOM!!! I know this wallpaper may not be for everyone but I think it should be. So I salute you, flippers, for trying to push people into the direction we should all be heading towards: making a big impact in small spaces!
There you go another FFFFF!!!! (No, I didn’t just have a seizure. Hint: rhymes with ducking habulous.)
