The unassuming cedar shake facade of this 4 story, single-family home opens up to a full-gut renovation. Preserving original elements of this early 19th century home was of the utmost importance… Newspaper found in the basement during demolition was repurposed as wall covering in the powder room where the original fireplace cover was re-built into a stunning vanity door. The custom kitchen gives nod to one of San Francisco’s most treasured, iconic landmarks, the Golden Gate Bridge, with it’s custom-built island finished in rust orange.
This project, rescued from another contractor, included an addition at the back to accommodate a breakfast nook with custom cabinetry for creative bench storage and to add to the over-all square footage. Vaulted attic tongue & grove ceilings, box beams with rustic lighting, and coffered living room ceilings with preserved original wainscoting were just a few of the incredible highlights of this remodel. Complete with a nanny suite which opened into a backyard with full deck and custom designed cedar fence, a keen eye and capability for true craftsmanship was essential for the successful outcome of this beautiful, transitional home.
