New Rehab in Tower Grove South: 4159 Wyoming

New Listings, Rehabbing Jul 2009

Finally, it’s finished! The renovation at 4159 Wyoming took us longer than we expected and of course we went over budget, but it is FINALLY ready.


All systems are new(er) as of this Spring: wiring, plumbing, HVAC (including ductwork) and water heater. Most of the walls were taken down to the studs and replaced with drywall. It’s a small house, just over 1000 square feet, but we wanted it to feel luxurious.The kitchens has custom cabinets, stainless appliances, under cabinet lighting and bead board backsplash. There’s subway tile in the bathroom along with an over-sized soaking tub. Crown molding finishes off every room and all the new(er) windows have 2″ plantation blinds.


As we show houses to clients we notice the details. A rehab is a rehab is a rehab, but occasionally we walk into a place that pops. We wanted our place to “POP.” Working on this project we spent a lot time agonizing over the details. I am pretty sure we spent a a good hour discussing the proper depth of the kitchen sink (not kidding) and then another two selecting the right fixture to finish the package. One of the major details that I am particularly proud of is the Murphy Bed. This allows the second bedroom to serve a couple different purposes: bedroom/office.


Not everything is new, although it would be easier to list what isn’t than what is. The original charm is intact. The pine floors, original moldings and solid wood doors set this home apart from a complete “home depot” gut.


The facade was the biggest challenge. At some point in this home’s history the cornice was torn off and replaced with a lovely piece of vinyl. The vinyl is gone and in its place is a replicated cornice from Edon. The front porch was rebuilt and a new overhang was added.

This home has not been listed yet, but should be live in the MLS by the end of the week. If you’d like to see it sooner just give me a call/email.
