Golden Valley Home Renovation

This French Classic Mansard home needed a delicate hand and keen eye to detail when it owners were ready to remodel. That's exactly what Schrader & Companies, BATC's Remodeler-of-the-Year, brought to the job. They began by keeping the original structure and architecture true, but updated with energy-efficient Marvin windows and a new front door.

Then moved inside. The owners wanted a modern, livable home that suited the way they live today. Schrader came through by melding state-of-the-art products and materials with a style that can be described as traditional transitional European. The result is a home that seamlessly balances aesthetics and function.

Step in the front entrance to the open stairwell, which is designed to showcase detailed custom iron balusters and a balcony overlooking the foyer. Repurposing the old laundry room into a functional mudroom enhanced the family entrance.

The truly modern kitchen looks as beautiful as it cooks. A 48-inch Wolf range is set off by a lavish François & Co. stone backsplash and very detailed custom cabinets and millwork. An elaborate island and 60-inch armoire Sub-Zero refrigerator complete the look.

Next, Schrader opened up the kitchen to a spacious dining room addition. Guests will be impressed by the barrel-vaulted ceilings and custom arched window that overlooks the wooded backyard. The family room features a detailed, custom entertainment system housing a flat screen TV and a see-through fireplace framed with an arch that peeks into the living room. And what French home would be without a beautiful grand piano music room.

The upper-level owners' suite is a delight, with added cabinetry and coz sitting room with its own fireplace. And down the hall, a firth bedroom was transformed into a large and truly convenient laundry room.

The lower level wasn't ignored, and boasts a temperature-controlled wine cellar, sunroom with arched opening, media room with another fireplace, as well as a study with custom-made desk and extensive cabinetry.
