Private Residence

Description

This 1909 historic home is a unique combination of Craftsman and Mission design styles. It is located on a gracefully tiered lot with a landmark garden designed by renown landscape architects, the Olmsted Brothers.

Over the years, uncoordinated remodeling projects plus a lack of serious attention to the integrity of the original house created the need for a comprehensive renovation.

The original details of the house, including a rediscovered inglenook (covered in the 1960s), inspired the owners to make authenticity one of their important design guidelines. In addition, strong attention was also given to easy flow through the house, adding to the variety of spaces, focusing the exterior views, and maintaining the large scale of main rooms.

The copper and pewter hood in the kitchen, the quarter sawn oak butler’s pantry, the Pratt and Larson reproduction ceramic tile, and the detailed rafter tails and faceted columns on the new porch are examples of important details that unify the highly remodeled areas with the original.

The large kitchen island, sunny baths, exterior fireplace, spacious porch and garden structures, family room with large media center, and generous breakfast room, are all designed to make the house delightful and practical in the 21st century.
