A 3,700-square-foot, four-bedroom center hall Colonial renovated in phases over nearly two decades will be featured in a “Remodeled Home Tour” sponsored by Sun Design Remodeling. The house, at 1611 Noral Place in Alexandria, is owned by Paul and Laurie Carter. The residence will open to the public Sept. 12, noon-4 p.m.
Purchased by the Carters in 1998, the home has evolved steadily over the years. Originally a production house with builder-grade finishes, the whole house remodel now on display demonstrates the kinds of improvements and upgrades that can occur when owners continue to occupy, modifying the environment to suit evolving interests.
“The ideal of long term ownership is the option to create a home that, over time, becomes more supportive of favored activities and aesthetic preferences,” says Bob Gallagher, Sun Design executive vice president. “We are finding this kind of on-going commitment to personalizing a residence much more frequently than in decades past.”
Sun Design Remodeling frequently sponsors tours of recently remodeled homes as well as workshops on home remodeling topics. Headquartered in Burke, the firm recently opened a second office in McLean. Call 703-425-5588 or visit www.SunDesignInc.com for more.
