Thoughtfully designed inside and outside, this home has something more than its individual parts – a soul. This two-story house has been completely remodeled yet retains its old world charm.
The designer was careful to pay respect to the home’s character by keeping as many of the original details as possible. The hardware, windows, hardwood floors and woodwork were restored to their former beauty. Even though Canyon Cove has an old British vibe, the home still makes sense for modern life.
The bathrooms, systems and appliances are new. Refined finishing choices were used like Cle tile and lighting from Hickley and Schoolhouse Electric. The furniture was acquired specifically for the home and mixes vintage with modern pieces. The living room is a large space with a lovely fireplace, exposed wood trim and abundant light. The designer completed the room by installing wallpaper and detailed lighting. Open to the dining room housing original glass cabinets, the rooms then flow beautifully into the kitchen. The gourmet kitchen is a chef’s delight. Green cabinetry was painted to work in sync with the original floor tile and the Tudor style. With wood beamed ceilings and an island in the middle, this kitchen has the space to cook and hang out.
Walk out the kitchen’s French doors onto the brand new deck to enjoy a meal outside or relax. The spacious, grassy backyard is flat and re-landscaped with room for a pool. There is a sumptuous master with an en suite bath and dual walk-in closets. Two additional well sized bedrooms and another full bath finish the Secord floor. This is a rare and special home. It is a classic Tudor revival that has been restored to its original beauty along with modern updates.
