This residence was rebuilt from the ground up with a fresh concept, design, and new footprint with an emphasis on high quality Craftsman details and finishing. A true to period bungalow with shed dormer detail, it was designed by architect Mike McKay of McKay Architecture. We participated in all phases of the project from preplanning and design to landscape, hardscape and outdoor kitchen additions. The interior mixes true craftsman aesthetics from the 1920's era with a more contemporary open plan for the main areas of the home. The home has integrated eco conscious solar and passive roof ventilation as well as low maintenance concrete shingle construction siding. The interior contains beautiful craftsman detailing, wood columns, wainscoting and flat cross beam ceilings. Traditional, period correct double hung windows, a rustic hearth and a lavish, freestanding period bathtub add to the setting. A contemporary open plan kitchen features a cast concrete island top, beautiful stone counters combined with classic custom cabinetry. Beautiful design details were added such as a custom hammered finish steel range hood and recessed indirect lighting. The master bath blends tradition with contemporary styling, vessel sinks on quartzite counters, the tub has it's own mini room. Another custom detail was the construction of a temperature controlled wine closet that is as beautiful open as when closed.
The interior was a collaboration between the home owners, her mother and MJ Interiors. Soft neutrals and whites used throughout contrast with shades of charcoal and grays, fumed wide plank wood floors and sisal rugs. The effect is a truly period setting with a contemporary point of view.
