home of distinction
Bringing the indoors outside, the sleek, streamlined, sculpted wood aesthetic takes over the backyard deck. While preserving
the architectural integrity of the 1928 design, the Tomasellis have achieved what the developers originally envisioned: resort
style, year-round living.
New Faces of Preservation
“I THINK what I really love, most people would have bought this property and torn it down to build something new,”
Konrady says, “but Ross and his mom were so in tune to the character of the house. All they wanted to do was to
preserve and enhance it.”
Likewise, Tomaselli was appreciative of working with the builder.
“Tanner has an incredible collection of subs,” Tomaselli says. “My appreciation for craftsmanship has grown
tremendously. He made this project so enjoyable, but I think the thing I’m most excited about is preserving a special piece
of Wrightsville Beach history.”
The home isn’t their only project. They teamed up to retrofit another Tomaselli investment at 84 Waynick Blvd., once
the site of the town’s only laundromat. The fashion boutique Hallelu occupies the ground level while the Tomaselli-Kon-rady
team is rehabbing the upstairs apartment with Alvarez and Tomasulo of Guest House. When finished this summer,
the apartment looking over Banks Channel will be a short-term rental.
