c. 1930 English Arts & Crafts home in University area


The custom cabinets and island are new and reflect the period of the home.  Limestone was chosen for the counters to give the kitchen a vintage feel. The top of the island was fabricated out of zinc,  a material that was widely used for counters in Europe, and the  pendant lights above the sink are also zinc.  The ceramic tiles in an oval shape are fun and upscale at the same time.  The new oak flooring was stained to match the original oak flooring that was restored throughout the rest of the house. Updated, yet in harmony with the style and essence of the original home.


A master bath had been added to this home in the 1950's and was placed in an oversized closet in the hallway.  That room was turned into a walk-in closet for the master bedroom,  and a small bedroom adjacent to the master bedroom was transformed into this luxurious  bathroom.   Once again, the cabinetry was custom designed and built to mimic the style of the home.  A vintage looking natural stone, Jerusalem Gold, was used on the floor and the oversized shower,  creating an updated "old world" look.  The countertop of the vanity, the medicine cabinets and the lighting work together to make the room feel original and bright.  The freestanding tub invites relaxation.
