In Cleveland Park there are many large foursquare homes from the early 1900’s, but several have not survived the years in very good shape. With this project, we brought back a badly renovated home (demolished front porch, aluminum siding) to new life, restoring a covered front porch and adding a significant and modern addition to the rear. A three-story glass wall, affording a spectacular view of the National Cathedral, gives the rooms at each level a strong connection to the exterior.
At the Kitchen, sleek white cabinets and stone counters are mixed with a custom-design walnut cabinet inspired by Japanese storage pieces. Other custom pieces were developed for the Basement Family Room and an upper-level Study.
Bathrooms incorporate generous use of stone tile, covering walls and floors.
The house was fully modernized during the renovation, with high R-value insulation materials, energy-efficient HVAC systems, completely new plumbing and wiring, and a dense network of smart-home capability.
