Arts and Crafts-model Arlington, Va., household for sale at $2.15 million

Tracy Haller often loved Arts and Crafts-model properties. And she saw significantly to admire in this a single in Arlington, Va., when she and her spouse purchased it in 2008. But it lacked some details — stained glass, wooden finishes and created-ins — attribute of the Arts and Crafts motion, which emphasized basic sorts and normal resources.

“It had very good bones,” she said.

She and her spouse, Christian Haller, are the 1st occupants of the residence, which was created in 2006 and remained vacant for two a long time. They embarked on renovations that altered just about every single place. Haller reworked with uniformity between unique and modified in mind.

“It’s been made to be in 1 design and style,” she reported. “It’s extremely cohesive with some features you do not see in most homes.”

In their first yr in the property, they replaced light-weight fixtures, set up wooden floors and did comprehensive landscaping.

“Probably the largest transformation you would see is the exterior with the landscaping,” she claimed. “We’ve experimented with to make it a personal oasis. … We entirely altered every thing other than for leaving the experienced hickory trees.”

Considering the fact that then, they have ongoing to enhance Arts and Crafts fashion with the addition of window seats in a bedroom, constructed-in bookshelves in the library, a mahogany garage door, a kitchen backsplash of handmade tile and a marble fire with a mahogany mantel. The most whimsical of the additions is a stained-glass window, that includes trees and a chipmunk, in the mahogany front door, which was also section of the renovation.

“You see a good deal of builders accomplishing farmhouse/Arts and Crafts-style, but they really do not generally put in the good features you would have noticed in older homes,” Haller said. “Unfortunately, you never see that as a great deal as I imagine you ought to.”

The to start with ground has the library, with large home windows and built-in bookshelves a official eating home with attractive molding and a living space linked to a screened porch.

The two-auto garage is accessed from the recreation space.
