This modest ranch on the east side of Bloomington sat on a great lot, but the house itself was ho-hum. With mature apple trees and a sweeping view of the 5-acre property and the forest beyond, the house deserved an overhaul that would capitalize on these assets. We raised the roof to create vaulted ceilings in the main living space, integrated an upper deck that allows for indoor/outdoor living, and added square footage to the finished walk-out basement. The newly renovated home is nothing short of spectacular. Architectural design by Kirkwood Design Studio.
