For one Charlotte family, their discovery of a former builder-owned Myers Park home, was the perfect mix of a recent remodel and manageable floor plan. The home simply needed the finishing touches. It is now decorated with a relaxed, ocean-influenced style that perfectly balances traditional tastes with the ease and
comfort often found in a beach home.

Like many older neighborhoods, the Smith family home was built right after the depression, in the early 1920s. A traditional Colonial style home, the home features one character filled room after the other.

You can tell the craftsmen that built this home took pride in their work. Plaster and lath walls and hardwood floors are throughout the home, as is most of the original windows, door hardware and millwork. As you enter the home, the formal living room is off to the left, a split level staircase is in the middle of the home and the dining room is off to the right.  A den lies just beyond the two French doors in the living room and a butler pantry and expanded kitchen area sit in the back right corner. A playroom and several bedrooms are upstairs.
