It is common knowledge that just like people, houses also grow old. Without constant renovations and upgrades, an old house would really look old and worn out. This is especially true in abandoned houses as nature would quickly take over and cover the place with plants.

But there is still hope for old homes. Some people have the knack of turning an old house to a beautiful one that looks absolutely brand new!

Just take for example this 30-year-old terrace house that recently got an upgrade, turning it into a modern white house with impressive features inside and out!

Old House Becomes Brand New

The 2-story terrace house is 30 years old. It shows signs of wear and tear, with black moldy parts showing that it was not kept well by its owners.

But whether they had a change of heart or someone else bought the property, the subsequent renovation looks fabulous! The old house is absolutely unrecognizable in the modern home that’s built on its old spot.

Bigger, Better House

Expanded to twice its original width, this new house looks and feels so much bigger and better than the old one. It also appears taller and has a huge wrap-around balcony.

Inside, the living room is spacious and features a huge L-shaped couch that’s so plump it could easily double as extra beds if lots of guests are around.

The scary-looking wood stairs have become beautiful white concrete stairs with steel railings painted in black.

The lot is maximized to make the house bigger. This resulted in a grand house with modern design that looks striking even from afar. Plants are added on the planters at the setback.

Great Accents

Care was taken in designing this modern home. There are great accents that add beauty to the space, including a huge pot with greenery right by the entrance. There’s also a nice patio that can also double as hangout, cooled by ceiling fans.

The interiors also feature various plants in stylish pots. A lovely tree was also planted outside to add to the tropical vibe.

The cost of building this modern villa could be upwards of Php2.5 million.
