We’ve been partnering with these clients for over seven years, gradually updating their beautiful home. The residence has evolved into the ideal place to welcome extended family and host large parties. More traditional in style, it’s filled with elegant, thoughtful details like crown moulding, wainscotting, window casings, columns with headers, and an archway built around the china cabinet. In the Old World-style kitchen, craftsmanship stands out with distressed cabinets, iron pulls, patterned stone backsplash, and dark wood accents such as the arched range hood (which hides a spice rack). To provide more seating for entertaining, we created a living room expansion beside the kitchen which is anchored by a gracious fireplace. Eclipse doors connect the inside living space with the outside. This extension provides a built-in BBQ, countertop and ample seating. Highlights include a backlit water feature, custom heaters and stone flooring. The light-wood soffits with skylights, speakers and lighting – along with the landscaping – make this the ultimate outdoor retreat.
