Remodeled vs. Updated? Home on Boyd Avenue Benefits From a Fresh Start

Updating vs Remodel debate begins

We’ve discussed this before but it never hurts to bring it up again.  There is a difference between “updating” and “remodeling.”

To this Bowtie Realtor, “updating” is doing a little bit of this and a little bit of that.  Maybe it’s not the bare minimum, but it’s certainly not going full-blown remodel.  Repainting a few rooms or cabinets, sprucing up the yard or changing fixtures — that’s what I would call updating.

Remodeling is where you nearly take the home apart and bring it back to life again.  New materials, new rooms, new everything — that’s what I would call remodeling.  Just wait to see the Tarrant County Tuesday home and you be the judge.

The home at 2417 Boyd Avenue is a remodeled home.  Built in 1946, but looking like a brand new home, it is steps away from Colonial Country Club and TCU.  If you are familiar with that area you will know that it’s a highly sought after area and blanketed with amazing trees and shade.

The list of work, which lasted from 2016 to 2018, includes: all new flooring, tile, kitchen configuration, appliances, HVAC, insulation, roof, resurfacing of pool, coping around pool, all new fixtures and finishes, cabana in back, deck, fixed drainage issues in back, fireplace, outdoor grill, landscaping, home automation and much much more!

Definitely Remodeled

Not only is this home located in an amazing neighborhood, close to so many points of interest, but it features five bedrooms, four bathrooms, a private study upstairs, an open floor plan, dining area, and a pool!  It definitely packs quite a punch.

Old pool photos didn’t paint a pretty picture, but 2417 Boyd Avenue now has a covered patio off the main home, pool and spa, and another covered entertaining area with fireplace and grill

Additionally, 2417 Boyd Avenue feeds into the highly desirable Tanglewood schools attendance area, which residents clamor for — Tanglewood Elementary, McLean Middle School, and Pascal High School.

What a Difference!

Kitchens, flooring, master bathrooms…those are the most important items for buyers as they search for their next home.  We’ve already seen the amazing transformation the remodeled kitchen has made, now let’s check out the bathroom.

The old shower leaves something to be desired.

Now that’s a remodeled shower!
