The Staircase is gracious and wide, the foyer wainscoting is carried up and down through-out all four levels of the home. The art lights above the artwork help light the way and showcase the owners collection of art..
This project got its start when a proud homeowner built his residence a number of decades back on a beautiful site in Solana Beach. The new design proposed a complete reconfiguration of the interior layout and a new gallery walkway. These changes would tie together the existing house and detached garage. Simple and well executed framing made this work relatively simple, keeping the existing exterior walls and roof in place. New interior and exterior finishes were applied throughout the house. In addition to reusing most of the existing structure, sustainable features include abundant natural light and ventilation, radiant heating, solar hot water and a PV system.
This home was built and modelled after a home the owners saw at the Homestead in West Virginia. A Greek Revival theme with lots of personal touches by the owners. The rear elevation has 9 French doors stacked on top of each other between what appears as three-story columns. Includes a master suite on the main level, large, elegant eat in kitchen, formal dining room, three-car garage, and many wonderful accents.
