“The open design … gives this small space an airy feel.” — Sue Goodhart, The Goodhart Group at McEnearney Associates.
An abundance of windows and an open floor plan helped a local home garner some national attention. An Old Town Alexandria abode is a finalist in the Living Large in Small Spaces category for HGTV’s Ultimate House Hunt 2017 contest. Homes in this category are recognized for a design that maximizes the use of a small space.
“The open design … gives this small space an airy feel,” said Sue Goodhart, The Goodhart Group at McEnearney Associates.
The light-filled home features modern renovations that include a gourmet kitchen, a living room with built-in cabinets and a steel cable railing. The free-flowing floor plan includes large windows, while the fenced in back yard was designed to be a sanctuary in the middle of city bustle.
“Sleek kitchen cabinetry and a stone table with seating for 12 allows for grand entertaining for the accomplished cook,” said Goodhart.
The home is one of eight across the country to become a finalist in the category. Anyone can vote for the 119 Princess St. property online until July 18. See http://www.hgtv.com/design/ultimate-house-hunt/2017-ultimate-house-hunt/living-large-in-small-spaces.
