Today’s House Crush is the most amazing fixer-upper challenge I have ever seen. This lovely four-story Victorian started life as a 70s ranch house—yes, an ugly fake stone and diagonal board covered 70s classic. Boxwoods owners Randy Korando and Dan Belman purchased the house and land near Madison, Georgia and took it to the next level—Heaven. Old windows, doors, shutters and architectural salvage brought their vision to life—it has been Randy-ized. His brain sees things no one else can envision and brings them to life. Trust me, you will love it.
Take a tour with me and I will point out a few amazing transformations along the way. Grab a cup of coffee and find a comfy chair—this home will let you ‘escape’ for a while.
What an amazing side entry.
Welcome to Camp Boxwoods!
The entry and living room are where the former garage was!
All of the built-ins are actually old furniture painted white—the framed pictures were just old paintings surrounded by architectural salvage.
The ‘bookcases’ are all handcrafted and painted white.
The new dining room is the former living room-doors and windows are all old.
This round porch off the dining room was salvaged from an old church—love that ceiling color.
And this is the view from the porch.
The entry garden view—lovely!
All of the porch detail is architectural salvage, too.
This niche was made by cutting an old phonograph in half!
A little Black Forest is always a good idea.
The kitchen entry to the garden is the most wonderful shade of aqua and has a salvaged brick floor.
Even the water bowl for the dogs is ingenious.
This massive stair case carries you up three floors!
This fireplace is now in the dining room.
This beautiful mirror is located on the screened porch-sorry lighting was challenging.
I think I need a door like this—how about you? Notice the small trim on the side of the door.
And if the house wasn’t enough of a crush this horse barn is a crush all by itself!
