THE PROJECT & CONSTRUCTION—This property has been masterfully redeveloped over the course of almost 2 years. The original home itself was completely gutted and stripped before being lifted and moved off of its foundation. The original foundation was demolished and an entirely new and dramatically expanded foundation was poured. The portion of the original exterior framing that was used to maintain the elegant historic stature of the home was rebuilt and modified to blend seamlessly into the new construction addition, it is supported by massive new steel structural beams. The living space and gross square footage of the building was more than doubled. Every staircase, floor, wall and ceiling is new or rebuilt! The home is incredibly energy efficient with all new window and doors (the front door was expertly restored and refinished), all new systems and services, all new roofs, new blown-in insulation and a new foundation.
The façade was rebuilt with additional and new custom architectural features, including: 81-plus new windows and doors; premium shingle and siding package; custom copper roofing, weather stripping, copula, finial, and weather vane; an entirely new front porch and stairs with hand-spun Spanish cedar pillars, new custom railings, mahogany decking and porch ceiling; professionally designed landscape with extensive and diverse plantings of trees, bushes and plants, new lawns, and professional irrigation system; granite front entry walkway; granite outdoor dining and entertaining veranda with built-in Lynx kitchen; new driveway with hand-laid granite cobble aprons, granite entry drive piers with granite from the original home’s foundation, and granite curbs; all new heated attached oversized 2-car garage with high ceilings to accommodate the option to use parking lifts increasing capacity to 4 cars and significant storage.
