The renovation beautifully accomplished by Hedgeford & Berkley designers managed to turn an old house that nobody wanted to walk in into a lovely home nobody wanted to leave anymore.
The renovation team took the challenge to show that they could make a major transformation to an advanced damaged building adjusting to the available budget.
The kitchen suffered major transformation as the plan to create an open kitchen area was achieved by placing a longer kitchen cabinet stand and recreate a breakfast bar in the available space.
They only established lower cabinets and totally excluded the upper ones in order to assure the perfect morning view to the garden surroundings. The impressive element of the kitchen area is the fully covered marble wall that gives the room a luxurious touch.
The main floor bathroom received a contemporary touch by using contrasting materials such as traditional marble and adjacent dark stained hardwood floors. The walls are a spectacular mix of wallpaper and white, wainscoted walls.
There has been added extra dimensions to the white walls by using wainscoting and oversized moldings around doorways.
The upper floor was restructured to create a getaway master loft with a large office, walk-in closet, a bedroom and an open plan bath area.
Not only the interiors benefited from the renovation. The exteriors and the garden also received fresh looks. The architects added a new roof, bright windows and they repointed the brick. The garden received it's very needed overhaul, two decks and a sunken lounge. The work garage was completed and the recently established outdoor space serves now for the future projects.
The creative team wanted to include in the garden an intimate area which would host a fire pit for the family and friends to relax and feel closer to each other - a place to hideaway after a long day of hard work. The tall grass was planted in the retaining walls covered with full body porcelain. The fire pit is custom made by a local welder and ingeniously integrates the industrial feel through the rusty steel.
