St. Francisville Home Gets Revitalized

This charming home, tucked away in a seclusive area in St. Francisville, was built by the clients in the 90s. With its back to a beautiful wooded preserve, the clients were looking to revamp this home to enjoy its beauty as they approach retirement. New hardwood floors and light fixtures added a modern ambiance throughout the entire living space. The goal for the home was, to not only update, but to make the spaces more spacious and efficient. This was done throughout the kitchen, breakfast area, dining, foyer, laundry, guest bath, and master suite.

In the kitchen we kept the original footprint, but extended the breakfast area and lined one wall with tall cabinetry, giving the clients a more open floor plan and, of course, more storage throughout. The original cabinets stayed and a top layer of cabinetry was added to extend the uppers to the ceiling. They were refinished, and the addition of warm colors and fixtures, with sleek white marble countertops, create a modern yet traditional feel.

The laundry room, along with the breakfast area, was extended to allow for more counter and storage space. In the bathrooms, stone floors and custom-made mirrors make for a clean and luxurious look.

The existing master closet was taken up by the new master bathroom footprint, and an addition was added to the back of the home to include a new, larger, closet, and a study accessed from the master suite. The back wall of the shower features full sheets of porcelain “marble”. The freestanding tub can be found nestled in a corner under the window, with a beautiful marble ledge.

The bathroom now includes ample counter and storage space, and a larger footprint curbless shower. The new closet now has double and tall hanging storage, built-in chest of drawers, and shelving; and the blue painted walls and millwork, along with the blue carpet, make it space you find hard to want to leave.

Along with all the interior work, the outside of the house included an addition to the carport and construction of a serene patio in the backyard. The carport addition was meant as a workshop, and the patio was meant for the clients to entertain or just sit back, relax, and enjoy their retirement in style!
