Welcome to Laurel, Douglas family!
The Douglas family decided to make Laurel home because they fell in love with the charm of the city and the overwhelmingly beautiful landscapes. Mike Douglas is a retired pharmacist and his wife Gwen took a job at a local elementary school in Laurel where she teaches reading. Making Laurel their new home was an easy choice, and when they found the house that they knew could be the home of their dreams they couldn't stay away.
The Douglases decided to bring a home back to life on one of the most iconic streets in Laurel's beautiful historic district. I think this home had been waiting for them all along. The couple favors the community and kindness that Laurel has to offer and couldn't wait to make it their home.
The beautiful, quaint all brick home was hiding behind years of dated renovations and it really brought it back to life to paint the exterior and freshen up the interior rooms. It warms things up so much! The Douglas family spends a lot of time in their home and hosting gatherings so having a space that would accommodate that was so important. More importantly, although they loved the home, choosing a home in Laurel was significant because of the atmosphere they immediately felt when they first visited. I feel like their home is just as warm and inviting now as they felt Laurel was to them.
This kitchen and family room in the back are such a dream! The Douglas family lived in the Cayman Islands for many years and have always favored the island vibe and colors of the Caribbean. Incorporating a bit of beach theme into their space really encompassed their personalities, as well as bringing them a little home away from home into their new town.
This back patio space! We can't get over it. Just let us know when you're ready for some company, y'all. It's so beautiful.
"We are an adopted forever family that will call Laurel our HomeTown." We couldn't agree more! Thanks for taking a chance on Laurel. You're our forever neighbors now and we couldn't be happier.
Welcome home, Douglas family!
