INMAN PARK WILBURN RENOVATION

The owners of this 1927 Leila Ross Wilburn bungalow in Inman Park’s historic district were looking to add functionality and a bit of extra space, while maintaining the home’s charming character. The district’s guidelines limited the living space that could be gained outside of the home’s modest footprint, but a thoughtful design created a new entry foyer and incorporated an existing sunporch. These front rooms now connect to open communal areas. Reconfigured bedrooms and an additional bath provide a more functional and efficient use of space, along with a better overall circulation. The kitchen was expanded to the back of the house, providing connectivity to a new deck and plunge pool, and adding storage along the new hallway. French doors in the upgraded master suite provide direct access to the rear amenities. Finally, spiral stairs were added for easy access to an office tucked away in the attic loft.
