The kids have spread their wings. An empty nester suburban couple are about to realize their dream of returning to the city. Closer to the friends they cherish, the restaurants they crave, and the neighborhoods they adore.
Turn this city two-flat surrounded by trees into our new urban nest. Clean and easy. Give us a kitchen to match our passion for cooking. Create a home that embraces the joy of friends and family and the sounds of our grandchildren playing in our midst. Vibrant, bubbling, juicy life!
We take down the walls. We install walnut and light oak cabinetry of varying heights to delineate the kitchen and den. We build in a chaise — yes, a chaise! –to separate the living area from the den. Between the living area and entry, a sleek two-sided fireplace glows warmly. Mid-century modern furnishings keep the scale light. Appetizing reds pop like berries and roses.
Our empty nesters cook contentedly. Friends gather in delighted conversation. Grandkids giggle as they roll on the chaise. Joy wafts freely through the space. A new urban nest – burgeoning with life!
