Jill and Josh Barrett were in search of "something different" in a new home. They found it in this house built in the modern style in 1959.

The dining room is illuminated with a dark metal chandelier and staged with bright, comfortable chairs and a dining table set with blue plates and French Country accessories and greenery. The new French doors open to the backyard and offer additional natural light. A magnolia wreath hangs above a sideboard displaying two lamps and white serving dishes.
The kitchen has refinished hardwood floors, new cabinets and paint. Ornate metal chandeliers illuminate a large kitchen island with plenty of storage and new granite countertops.
The living room has been repainted a bright, modern blue with white trim. The original wood floors have been refinished, and a portion of shiplap wood siding has been uncovered from beneath the sheet rock and painted white, to elegantly extend the mantel of the fireplace.
