Grant Park Tudor – Gourmet Kitchen & Baths
This must see 1929 NE Portland Tudor home is the result of our home owner’s desire to transform their two bedroom home with an unfinished basement, outdated cramped kitchen and bathrooms into a beautifully detailed four bedroom family home. After four separate remodels by COOPER Design Builders over the past decade, it is now the home of the family’s dreams.
The priority for the first remodel was to add two dormers at the back of the house, as they would create space for an additional child’s bedroom in one of the dormers and a large walk-in closet for the master bedroom in the other. The second remodel focused on the basement, which was designed to include an ample utility room, a full bathroom highlighted with Boston Penny Tile, a guest bedroom for extended family to stay, and a spacious family room for all of them to play and relax in. The kitchen was addressed in the third remodel and was moved to the old family room at the back of the house. The new expanded kitchen features classic white french doors and cabinets, energy efficient appliances & lighting and a large contrasting mahogany island, all to create a warm and inviting environment for the family to cook and eat together. Relocating the kitchen also gave us the opportunity to design a new butler’s pantry and open up a wall into the formal dining room that was previously inaccessible from the kitchen. This created a circular flow pattern which improves the livability of the entire main floor. Finally, we refurbished the main floor bathroom and the leaking upper floor bath. The upper bathroom was tastefully expanded to accommodate a large shower featuring grey herringbone marble tile inlay with glass surround and a beautiful white vanity. The main bathroom features new penny tile and a sensitive re-use of the vintage built-in medicine cabinet and the laundry chute. The result of COOPER Design Builders long standing relationship with this house and homeowner over the past the decade is a fully refurbished home with beautiful details that fosters family and friends coming together.
