More a reconstruction than a renovation, extensive work on a 1938 Mandell Place property is believed to have kept only the original slab, exterior walls and roofline. The rest has been reimagined by Fisher Homes, which looks to have reduced the number of interior walls but boosted the white trim package big time. Like a line of creamy frosting, wainscoting panels finish much of the home, which is located west of Mulberry St. and north of W. Alabama St. For the rebuilt results, the seller is now asking $1.35 million. The previously updated property last sold in 2011 for $485K. Do the modifications add up to the “90 percent new” touted in the listing, which went up earlier this month?
Slightly recessed, the front entry lands in a central foyer — where the walls are mostly a suggestion and the trimmings begin to let rip:
Front rooms house the formal dining room . . .
and equally serene front office, with a view of the streetscape:
More paneling continues down the front hallway and takes a lap around the family room, at the back of the 3,288-sq.-ft. home:
Paneling and white cabinetry that’s about the same height meet up in the kitchen, which is open to the family room:
The kitchen’s informal seating area looks across the back porch and across the back lawn, located on the north end of the 6,250-sq.-ft. lot:
More panels flow up the stairwell before lining the common areas. The very open landing at the top of the stairs gets tagged as the game room:
Instead of wainscoting, the master bedroom shifts trimmings above to form — and accent — a recessed ceiling:
Marble slabs finish out the master bathroom, in which the vanities flank the corner tub:
Here’s a section of the suite’s closet:
Three secondary bedrooms share the home’s 2 other full bathrooms (there’s a powder room downstairs):
One of the bedrooms off the game room has double-door access to a shallow balcony above the porte-cochere . . .
and its own bathroom:
Meanwhile, on the back porch, more trim zips up the ceiling:
Above the 2-car garage, the room has insulation . . .
but no walls:
Open houses are scheduled for Saturday and Sunday afternoon over the holiday weekend.
