This 5-bedroom/7-bath 1939 pre-war Colonial home is the last property designed by local architect Rob Morris before his death in 2014. He performed a complete gut and renovation on the Arlington house in 2013, staying as true to the historical roots of the house as possible, while bringing in all modern amenities. Now, it is on the market for the first time since the upgrade for $2.59 million. (Image: Courtesy Compass)

Check out the transformation of this gutted and renovated Arlington home

This 1939 pre-war Colonial home was already a gem before local architect Rob Morris got his hands on it. But after the complete gut and renovation he worked on the Arlington property in 2013, it became a seriously stunning property! Now, it is on the market for the first time since the upgrade.

Morris, who passed away in 2014, was always very inspired by the historical elements of a home, so he made sure to adhere to the original design and feel of the home whenever possible, while also bringing in completely tricked-out modern amenities. The wood flooring throughout the home was reclaimed from wood that was sunk in the James River for 150 years, and stone used in the expansion was from the same quarry that supplied the original building material over 80 years ago. Stained glass doors added between the master bedroom and bathroom give a period feel to the house, but the fact that the entire house is wired for AV equipment, and speakers are in every room make it a very 2018 property.
