We were all over the place, last week! We went under contract with a property in Gastonia, Miss Poston. We got the keys for Martha Jane (in Rockwell, NC). And we are wrapping up Old Savannah. To say there are a lot of ‘moving parts’ is an understatement; but that is life at Hewbrick Properties!!!
So let us introduce you to our latest property, Miss Poston (appropriately named after the street she is located on-notice a theme??).
Miss Poston is located on an adorable corner lot in Gastonia. She has beautiful hardwoods that need a little attention & even a covered back porch area. We don’t expect to do as much demo as Old Savannah, but she will get plenty of TLC before her next tenants arrive.
We picked up the keys for Martha Jane, yesterday. She is about 45mins outside of Charlotte, and I must say, the drive out could not have been more beautiful and peaceful. It can be nice to step away from the hustle and bustle of the city and be able to just hear the wind and nature. This one, like Miss Poston, should not require many structural repairs, just replacing the flooring & some other minor touch ups. Our biggest chore will purging the contents left behind. Can’t wait to see what treasures we will discover!
Lastly, we can’t post without updating you on our ‘first born’! Old Savannah is getting her final coat of paint in all the rooms. We are expecting the hardwood refinishing to begin today or tomorrow. And of course, one of my favorite show pieces (so far) are the bathrooms. The vanities were delivered last week & are waiting to be installed-they look great! But the master shower….I want this in my own house! We will leave you with this beauty!!!
Stay tuned for our next treasure hunt & have a great week!
We have been all over the place, this week! Our priority has been on our Gastonia property. We were able to wholesale ‘Gastonia’ and have been working with the buyer, seller, and closing attorneies to complete this deal. We put people first with our business. The good news about this story is with the sale of their home, the original owners were able to purchase a car and move back across the country to be closer with family.
We have been visiting a lot of potential properties from North Wilkesboro down to Rock Hill. This has kept us away from Old Savannah, for the most part. Good news is, we have a awesome contractor with this project. Kevin (Cunningham Contractors) has helped keep things moving while we have been away. And when I say moving…look at how amazing this shower is turning out!!
This weekend we are hoping to do a little landscaping at Old Savannah. She has no shrubs and a green yard, so we have a blank canvas to spruce up. Stay tuned
Next week, we close on our property in Rockwell, NC. We have affectionately named her Martha Jane (based on her street address). Can’t wait to feature this property on our upcoming blog
We told you last week would be busy at Old Savannah, and it was! We are giddy with excitement, regarding the progress last week and what is to come this week. The realtor’ sign will be in the yard before we know it!!!
As you see, our new kitchen cabinets, from Home Depot, have been installed. We also have put a fresh coat of paint on the walls. We are so pleased at how bright this room is with the paint and white cabinets. Very updated, but not modern.
Remember when the kitchen looked like this???
The bathroom tile in the hall bath has been laid. It wasn’t one of the original styles we looked at originally (and showed you on our previous blog). That is something great about this project is making quick changes and seeing how well they turn out! We decided to go with a 10″x14″ careera for our floor tile. Completely freshens up this bath!!! Below is a reminder of the old bath.
Finally, the floor tile has gone down in the master bath! I want this in my own-could not be more pleased!!! The master bath was gutted by the previous homeowner & when we purchased, it was still down to the studs. We reconfigured the space & replaced the tub with an oversized shower. We have installed the inlayment & waterproofing in the shower. Now we waitfor the inspectors to give us the green flag, so we can begin laying tile in the shower. It is going to look amazing!
Below is a quick peek at those gorgeous 2×2 octagonal tile floors (and the shower)!!
We will continue to paint & lay tile, this week. We also hope to get the bath vanities in.
Stay tuned for an update on our Gastonia property as well as an introduction to our latest property, Martha Jane.
