Explore lighting designer Julie Neill’s exquisite circa-1880 Italianate camelback shotgun home that she has lovingly renovated into a soothing oasis that in part serves as inspiration for her hand-crafted, luxe lighting designs. With each renovation, Neill has been careful to keep the 2,800-square-foot home’s historic character, including the raw-grain cypress doors and the original wood floors, which she had pickled. She also kept much of the shotgun layout. “Some people want to buy (a shotgun) and gut it. You’ve got a shotgun on the outside, but a condo on the inside. Can’t do it,” she said. “It’s not an open plan, but you start to live in it like it is. All the doors stay open.”
Shotgun House Month presented by Entablature Design + Build & Entablature Realty
Join the PRC for a month-long celebration of the city's beloved shotgun houses, featuring guided virtual tours through five gorgeous homes and one exquisite bonus house. The tours will focus on the history of the property, the use of space, renovation details and a Q&A session with the homeowners, contractors and designers who make the space come alive. The tours are FREE to attend with a SUGGESTED DONATION of $25. In addition to the virtual tours, PRC will host an incredible lineup of other virtual programs, focused on the history of the shotgun house type and ways to decorate long, lineary spaces.
