5th Avenue Re-Defined
Let’s just say that when this home was finished, it completely redefined the neighborhood and goes beyond just improving…more like elevating the whole block! Here’s what Kogan Builders had to start with:And this view from the back:
A lot of time and planning went into the possibility of resurrecting this small Victorian in the historic district of Durango. Kogan Builders’, Chris Dale, spent much time with the city trying to determine if the home was salvageable. Everyone decided that starting from the ground-up was the best decision and the results speak for them selves!
Complex roof lines and dormers add to the architectural interest, and the feeling of extra room in only 2300 sq. ft. of living space. Skylights throughout the house brighten the kitchen, hall and living room. Reclaimed wood salvaged from the existing shed on the property provide the material accents for the custom-made sliding barn doors and interior siding details.
Bright and airy, the open floor plan downstairs flows from dining to kitchen and living room. This home isn’t trying to be a dark Victorian replication, but an updated urban take on historic downtown. Homeowner, Michelle, emphasizes her design preference of “eclectic” – a blend of rustic accents offset by clean, white lines.
