It is truly fun and gratifying to take on the task of renovating a dated house and completely transforming it into a dream home. We have been blessed to take the goals and design style of a client that loved the location of this particular house – when they asked us about the potential of what it could become – we said the house has good bones and location, location, location – go for it! A week later they owned the house and tasked us with the renovation. Low Ceilings and narrow dark hallways went the way of the dumpster…and the transformation began.
After we literally raised the roof, and moved the garage, we converted the previous driveway into a private courtyard at the front entrance.
Outdoor living and a large place for entertaining was a must for these clients.
There’s a pass-through from the kitchen to facilitate serving.
The pool has an integrated firepit.
Love the shade that an arbor provides - this was our first installation of artificial turn – it looks amazing and is no maintenance!
The interior spaces are unexpectedly fresh open and filled with natural light. The art collection brings color to the tone-on-tone spaces.
Several walls were removed to create this open kitchen / dining space. The built-in banquette is a favorite spot in the morning.
An integrated walk-in wine celler is visible through massive sheets of solid glass.
What was once a narrow / dark hall has now become an open and bright gallery for art.
This project was a true success we had clients that knew what they wanted and we were able to translate their wishes for their new home into reality…and best of all got new friends along the way.
Happy Gardening -
