Built in 1905, the free-classic Queen Anne home has 3,200 square feet. Rob Smith and Carl Mattison renovated the home, which has five bedrooms, three baths and an additional bathroom in a new pool cabana. Their home will be on the Grant Park Candlelight Tour of Homes on Saturday, Dec. 10 and Sunday, Dec. 11.
The remodeled kitchen now opens to the dining room, with large casement windows and a big island, and appliances and plumbing from Pirch. Mattison and Smith wanted to renovate this room since they moved in in 2009, but they needed time to decide on the design. They finally completed the changes in 2015. "We are more than happy that we waited to 'get it right,'" said Mattison, an interior designer.
