Before and After: Gorgeous renovation of a midcentury home in Maryland

midcentury-home-remodel-exterior

This midcentury home underwent a complete interior and exterior remodel by Balodemas Architects, located in the Somerset neighborhood of Chevy Chase, Maryland. Originally constructed in 1968, the new owners of this home had a love of midcentury modern style. The property slopes up from the street, where the main living spaces on the upper level are connected to the backside of this property.

When the owner’s began the remodel, they wished to maintain the character of this home, keeping the main frame while adding color and a more modern layout. Included in their wishlist for this 3,500 square foot dwelling: increased natural light, an indoor-outdoor connection, a new kitchen, a harmonious flow between the living/dining/kitchen areas, and all new bathrooms. There are a total of five bedrooms and three bathrooms in this home. Continue below to see the before pictures and floor plans!

The original floor plan was not significantly altered. Instead, the project team focused on improving access to outdoor living spaces, creating a more spacious entry, and renovating the bathrooms and closets. The inviting entry features porcelain tile from Architectural Ceramics.

The owners loved the “Brady Bunch” style staircase, so they refreshed the look by adding a new top rail cap. The fieldstone planter is also an original detail that was preserved, but the painted wood screen was added to create a visual separation between the stairs and the lower-level family room and office.

What We Love: This midcentury home remodel showcases beautiful new design elements all while preserving the existing footprint. Living spaces have been updated to enhance the lifestyle needs of the owners while creating a fabulous indoor-outdoor connection. We are loving the addition of skylights and a Solatube to further increase the natural light into this home, creating a light and airy feel. Overall, an incredible transformation that is warm and inviting!

An existing window in the middle of the vanity, along with a new skylight helps to bring in plenty of natural light. The shower and wall tile are by Porcelanosa, while the floor tile is from Architectural Ceramics. The vanity faucet is Moen, and the shower fixtures are Graff.
