Authentic charm in a home remodel
Written by: Susan Zingraf
Four years ago, Ray Lewis and Matt Condon were ready to move. “We wanted a truly unique property,” Ray explains. They found it all in Bexley with a charming Cotswold style home on a stunning site with an English countryside feel. “We fell in love with this property because it’s like a European villa,” says Matt.
Ray and Matt moved in armed with ideas for changes to the interior. They chose to work with Monica Miller from J.S. Brown & Co., who gave them some unexpected advice. “Live in the space first,” she advised them. Matt explains, “Monica was the only contractor who said ‘Just sit with the house a while before you start ripping things out.’” They are grateful to this day for her advice. It allowed their thinking to evolve over three years before embarking on their first big interior project to remodel the master bathroom.
