Residential Home Remodeling
County tax records date the construction of this home to 1910. Recognizing the distinctive architectural character of the home, the city of Sacramento made 1119 23rd street part of the city’s ‘Capital Mansions’ historic district (map).
In the spring of 2013, a project was undertaken to expand, renovate, and renew the home.
One hundred years of history, renewed.
Expansion of living space: Originally constructed as a single finished floor over a ground level garage/work area, the home was expanded with a new internal stairway and finished ground floor, adding a bedroom and bathroom, retaining a garage space.
Replacement of all major systems and finishes : The following systems were replaced in the course of the 2013 remodel:
Plumbing – All water lines replaced throughout the home. All natural gas lines replaced, throughout the home. A brand new water heater has been installed.
Central Heating and Air Conditioning – A brand new central high efficiency forced air system serves both the upper and lower floors of living space. A NEST thermostat makes programming the system a snap.

Fire Code Improvements – All new living space meets current fire safety codes. This is a safe home ready for the next 100 years.
