Eric, Christine, Solomon, Abraham, Benjamin and Levi Bloomquist
Style: Craftsman Bungalow
Don’t Miss: Original coffered ceiling in living room
Shortly after closing on the property in 2014, the Bloomquists started a renovation process that lasted a full year. Today, the home is a completely restored four-bedroom, three-bathroom classic example of the American Craftsman bungalow (also called a “Transitional” bungalow) that represented a shift from Victorian architecture to more of an Arts & Crafts style.
The original heart pine hardwood floors, six-panel doors, and picture molding are still present throughout the house as are the coffered ceilings, plate molding and original mantles in the front rooms. In fact, the living room was largely untouched during the renovation other than painting and refinishing the original flooring.
