1973 Double Wide Undergoes Major Renovation

Through the year while we are searching for mobile homes for sale, we always find ourselves saving homes that catch our eye to share with our readers later. This 1973 double wide has been on our list to share since way back in 2022 and showcases what it means to strip a home down to its bones and give it an update.

Designed for Entertaining

Everything about this home is new, from the plumbing to the electricity. The owners went as far as to even replace the subfloor before installing plank hardwood floors.

Considering the finished look, it’s hard to picture what this 1973 double wide initially looked like. With recessed lighting, drywall ceiling and walls, as well as a modern kitchen, this home offers the ultimate entertainment space.

The kitchen is the perfect combination of modern and functional. It offers abundant cabinet storage, clean lines, and stainless steel appliances. And, with the open floor plan the spaces blend together perfectly.

When the owners decided to take this home down to the studs and renovate it, they considered its location in a 55+ park and set up the new floor plan accordingly. By choosing to make two primary bedrooms with en-suite baths, they made this the perfect home for older folks who had friends and family come to visit.

Wonder what the original floor plan looked like?
Both bedrooms offer en-suite baths and walk-in closets.

1973 Double Wide Gets Fresh Look too

The exterior received a fresh makeover, including a new composite deck with built-in planters, board & batten siding, enhanced landscaping with fresh rock additions, and roof overhangs on both sides, all contributing to its attractive curb appeal.
