This project was to bring back to life an 1888 Edwardian house. It was situated on a bluff with a commanding view, had good bones and a lot of possibilities. Over the years it had been neglected and though it was remodeled some in the 70’s the efforts were of poor quality.
I began by removing a few walls, door frames and windows to enhance the circulation and ‘flow’ through the house. I installed skylights, French doors, and sun tubes for light. I added new fir flooring where it could not be saved and repaired, sanded and finished the existing. I brought up to date the kitchen and the bathroom, while keeping the details and retaining the charm of the Edwardian era.
We excavated downstairs where it had been a dirt floor basement and added another 800 sq ft that includes a bedroom suite, a full bath plus ½ bath, a laundry room, a wine cellar and a media room all in the style and spirit of the upper floor. Outside, I renewed the decks; I built a terrace and retaining walls for planters to enhance the garden.
