When Charlotte natives Caroline and Tyler Covington bought their home in Myers Park they had a vision for an open, welcoming space for entertaining and daily life.
The home had been through previous additions and renovations in years past but was in need of some editing to best suit this vibrant young couple. They brought in Polly Finn of Pursley Dixon to reconfigure the space and provide architectural plans, Halley Douglas for the construction and project management and Crystal Nagel Design for the interior selections. Caroline brought a particular vision for the project from her own interior design experience.
Upon entering the 1925 tudor, a softly lit, refined, new staircase sets the tone in an open foyer. The flooring was updated with 7” wide plank in a custom finish.
Curved stairs lead to the open concept family and dining room boasting a lovely pair of corner windows and a cast fireplace for a cozy room with beautiful natural light.
Just beyond the family room sits the kitchen. It was completely updated with fresh cabinetry, a symmetrical design and oversized island to blend the best of form and function.
The custom metal hood feature was made by a local artisan and shines as the focal point of the space.
The open x on the island leans more towards the look of a table and keeps the open feel of the space. Custom beams draw the eye up and add beautiful architectural detail and interest. A bar and serving area with floating shelves offers a space to serve beverages while hosting guests.
Just around the corner is the charming mudroom with brick flooring, custom built lockers, and a barn door concealing the laundry area.
The powder room is unique with its artisan-made concrete vanity under beautiful, antiqued mirror.
The master bedroom stuns with its own fireplace, original to the home, up-fitted with a new custom mantel and marble surround.
The paneled pivot door conceals the owners’ closets and beautiful bathroom.
The his and hers vanities and cast iron tub are gorgeous against the backdrop of marble.
The secondary bathrooms are in keeping with the home and are a mix of clean lines and timeless choices for a fresh look.
The transformation of this house was marked with superior teamwork between architect, Polly Finn, builder, Halley Douglas Homes, local artisans (too many to name), designer, Crystal Nagel, and homeowners, Caroline and Tyler Covington.
