Home #15 Silent Rivers Design+Build
460 27th Street, Des Moines, IA 50312
This Victorian gem near Terrace Hill is a showcase of historic preservation! Renovations in this grand home include several intelligent approaches to adding modern functionality in the kitchen, bathrooms and other spaces. The beautiful original woodwork, magnificent tile and ornate hardware throughout the 125-year-old home are celebrated in the renovation’s design, and masterfully crafted throughout. Original wood species and stain colors are matched to all trim profiles and carved wood elements, and materials selections are thoughtfully considered. Kitchen appliances are concealed with wood panels that complement existing built-ins. Kitchen and bathroom tile, hardware, tank-style toilet and belt-driven ceiling fan are also period-appropriate. The attic space is refinished, and new gables were added to reinforce the house’s original Victorian charm. Solutions on all three floors will amaze.
