Expansive Home Remodel
An old stone mansion built in 1924 had seen a number of renovations over the decades and the time had finally come to address a growing list of issues. Rather than continue with a patchwork of fixes, the owners engaged us to conduct a full house renovation to bring this home back to its former glory and in line with its status as an international consulate residence where dignitaries are hosted on a regular basis. One of the highest priorities was updating the main floor’s more public spaces which serve as the primary representation areas where special events are hosted on a weekly basis.
Worn wall-to-wall carpet was removed revealing original oak hardwood floors that were sanded and refinished with an Early American stain. Great attention to detail was given to the selection, customization and installation of new drapes, carpets and runners all of which had to complement the home’s existing antique furniture. The striking red runner gives new life to the grand hall and winding staircase and makes quite an impression upon entering the property. New ceilings, medallions, chandeliers and a fresh coat of paint elevate the spaces to their fullest potential. A customized bar was added to an adjoining sunroom that serves as spillover space for formal events and a more intimate setting for casual gatherings.
Our largest project to date, this whole house remodel also included two kitchen renovations (one large main kitchen and an added service kitchen), seven bathrooms (two master baths, two full baths and three powder rooms) and new carpet, paint and window treatments throughout. For a job of this scale, we couldn’t have done it alone and are thankful to have a network of trusted vendors and subs that each did their part to help us turn this historic stone mansion into a thing of beauty.
