From Mid-Century to Modern Masterpiece – Before and After


The stunning transformation from a 50’s split level home to an architectural and designer modern masterpiece.

The home at 807 Dumville Avenue in the Riverview community of Suffolk, Virignia was originally purchased in 2006 as a 2,400 square foot 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath conventional house built in 1953.

It was reimagined as a modern masterpiece by the renowned Tymoff+Moss Architects firm based in Norfolk, Virginia. The resulting present-day home is a 6,400 square foot, 4 bedroom, 5 bath open concept smart home with sleek lines, ultra-luxury finishes, and custom features. The home mixes commercial quality construction, technology and European modern design to create a home unlike any other in Southeast Virginia.

The smart home features Control 4 technology allowing automation of lighting, entertainment, security and climate control personalized to a homeowner’s lifestyle. A networked Apple communication system allows computer, internet and television access from nearly every room of the house. A Canton speaker system combined with stadium seating and acoustic design are the highlights of a complete home theater system with a 10 foot screen.


Inspired by modern European design, the Italian kitchen features Scavolini cabinets, a double Liebherr refrigerator and freezers, and Hoshizaki under counter ice machines.


A built-in 20 seat LED illuminated table is the central focus of the entertainer’s dining room that features a double waterfall and views of the inground salt water pool.
