Before & After – A Destin Condo



     The one and only thing that did not change in this remarkable before-and-after is the views of the Gulf of Mexico from the balcony!  If I were in the market for a condo, I would want a fixer-upper just like is one so I could make it just the way I wanted.  But through the years of working with all kinds of buyers, I have un-scientifically determined that 95% of people do not have a vision of what something “could” look like!  I can walk in and know immediately what I would change and I could visualize the end product.  But most buyers prefer the turn-key product.  We had this condo listed and had tons of showings, but it took a while to finally find that buyer with vision to convert this “Granny Chic” condo to what it is today.  I would say this renovation has a masculine, Asian flair to it.  Without further adieu, here are the before and afters…

The kitchen was completely gutted – new appliances, new cabinetry, new floors, new lighting, new backsplash and a more open floor plan…

The living room has all new furniture, new paint, new floors and smoked glass mirrors…

Removing that upper bank of cabinets really opened up the kitchen…


 The glass tile backsplash really pulls in the colors of the granite counters…


Here you can see the tile embellishments and the tile floors that look like wood – so great for wet and sandy feet!




The Master Bathroom has double sinks and was completely gutted…


The guest bathroom was also gutted… DSC_0859

     This condo is now on a short-term rental program and is located on Holiday Isle in Destin, FL.  The owner has really taken the time to think of the little details that are important to his guests…he has large flat screen TV’s in all rooms with high-def channels and streaming Netflix, (have I mentioned I am now addicted to binge watching on Netflix and just started “Breaking Bad” and I can’t wait to see what Walt and Jessie do next?)  an xbox for the kids and memory foam mattresses. #signmeup   If you are interested in renting this condo, click here.
