But the smart renovation went beyond just the rear addition as the interior was completely altered to give the classic home a new lease on life. Despite the new structure in glass steel and timber the front façade of the heritage home was left largely untouched in order to preserve its rich history.
The biggest problem that plagues old buildings built several decades ago is the poorly planned additions and renovations that they go through with time making them almost untenable as cheerful modern homes.
A metal and wood staircase leads to the top level that contains the private spaces which follow the neutral color scheme and recreate the inviting ambiance of the living area below. With time the exterior is expected to weather and age beautifully adding a dynamic and exquisite cloak to this expansive house.
The kitchen alteration was carried out by Christy Allen Designs who also aided the owners in picking the right colors décor lighting options artwork and accessories for the rest of the house. The final result is a comfy contemporary interior that exudes an air of refinement.
It is exposed masonry steel rusted metal and glass that shape the modern retreat both on the inside and the outdoors. Flowing into the lavish deck space and rear yard the lines between the interior and the backdrop are blurred ever so elegantly. Glittering lighting plush décor and curated artwork complete this relaxing and ravishing escape!
