A Massive Oceanfront Property With Dated Style Gets a Modern Refresh

When Alison and Frank purchased an oceanfront home for their large family 25 years ago, it was 5,000 square feet of gorgeous, livable property. But as empty nesters, the sizable abode became too much to maintain. Add in an outdated kitchen, a dysfunctional master bedroom and an awkwardly positioned laundry room, and Alison was ready to downsize. So Frank called in Jillian Harris and her reno team from Love it or List it Vancouver to revive the space and convince his wife to stay. Here’s how the designer managed to transform this beast of a home into a functional modern oasis.
