This traditional 1960’s kitchen was completely replaced with new Shaker style Expresso cabinets and “White River” custom granite counters. A large section of wall to the den was removed to create a gorgeous open kitchen with counter height breakfast bar. Note the fabulous pendant lights over the new breakfast bar, on a separate dimmer circuit. We also created a built-in space for the new refrigerator. New 3″ recessed halogen lights replaced the old 60’s metal cans. New undercabinet lighting creates a warm cozy feel to this large kitchen. Lovely and stunning undermount stainless steel sink and faucet. We also added a stainless steel and glass cooker hood which connects to an exterior vent pipe. The backsplashes are 4×4 tumbled marble with small bronze accent relief tiles. Note the incredible travertine floor, which is unfilled chiseled edge, laid in a “Versailles” pattern.
We installed new Italian handscraped tobacco color hardwoods in the den, dining room and formals. The old brick fireplace was simply painted in a “Dark Cavern” color to modernize this feature. We constructed a pretty display recess with hidden halogen lighting to highlight the new enlarged entryway. The stairs were also updated with matching hardwood treads, and restaining the banisters to match. The old wood paneling was sprayed with white oil based semigloss paint, along with the vertical tread boards.
Here is where the real transformation starts … the master bathroom! The old master bathroom was, of course, gutted and several walls removed to enlarge the space. A new custom shower with frameless enclosure was built, new vanity and a new tub installed. We retiled the backsplashes with travertine tile and stone edging. The new vanity has the elegant granite top and undermount sinks, with new framed mirrors and lights.
In the master bedroom, we added a new French door which gives tons of light and opens up to the pool. New paint and carpet, of course, completes this wonderful master suite.
The old guest bathroom was moved to an adjacent closet space. Note the fabulous “Adobe Trowel” glazed texture on the walls.
The 5th bedroom was altered slightly and turned into a new study.
The old pantry was demolished, and a full wide double pantry constructed.
