The kitchen in the Augusta home of David and Cindy Steele.

The couple moved into the English Tudor Revival-style bungalow in 2001. The Steeles loved the architecture and the history of the house on Bellevue Avenue.

Built in 1926, it was a “kit house,” a type of prefabricated housing popular in the first half of the 20th century. The materials were made by a Chicago company and shipped to Augusta.

The Steeles decorated the house with Craftsman-style furniture, including pieces from David’s grandparents’ house. Oak floors run throughout the downstairs.

A screened porched was converted to a sunroom where Cindy reads and has prayer time.

The library features pine shelves.

The kitchen overlooks a manicured backyard, garden and wood deck.
