North Georgia-based contracting firm Womack Custom Homes recently completed a stunning historic home renovation in Cartersville, Georgia. Inspired by the craftsmanship found in historic homes, the four-generation legacy that is Womack Custom Homes now offers residential, commercial, remodel and design-build projects.
The reason for a home remodel can range from simply adding more space to updating the current layout and cosmetic design features. When it comes to historic homes, updates need to be made that preserve the original integrity of the building while also implementing energy-efficient renovations to enjoy for years to come.
Recognized by the Etowah Valley Historical Society as the First Baptist Pastorium Burch-Miller House, this cozy farmhouse-style home was originally built in the 1880s and needed some major updates, specifically on the main level. Updates of this home, located at West Cherokee Avenue in Cartersville, included removing a living room wall and adding a supportive steel beam to create a more open-concept first floor, converting a broom cupboard under the stairwell into a powder room, completely gutting the kitchen, replacing natural pine flooring throughout and adding fresh paint.
From the crown molding, judges paneling, sophisticated fireplaces with mantels and elegant fixture details, this renovation boasts modern design elements while still paying tribute to the home’s original construction. A neutral color palette with pops of green, blue and gold connects the main level’s overall aesthetic from room to room.
The real jaw-dropping transformation is the gourmet kitchen, which now features a massive island with built-in microwave and wine cooler, gleaming granite countertops, stunning herringbone backsplash, stainless steel appliances including an oversized gas range, farmhouse sink and detailed rangehood. Whether it is a small gathering with family or a quiet evening at home, this kitchen offers the perfect backdrop for both entertaining and relaxing.
In addition to simply increasing the home’s overall value, this historic renovation also preserved its historic integrity as a significant landmark.
