The same family owned this stately home for over 70 years. It was purchased though the winnings of a child in the family who won the National Spelling Bee!
Despite its wonderful design, the structure suffered from years of deferred maintenance, and a general lack of modernization. The house was not suited for its new owners – a family of 5.
Partnering with the owners, Centoni designed and developed a master plan for the interior and exterior renovation that included various seismic upgrades to the structure, full utility replacement (electrical, plumbing, sewer, HVAC, AV), as well as a remodel of 3 bathrooms, a kitchen and a full exterior restoration. Great pains were taken to restore the façade of this home to its original splendor – including custom-built art glass windows.
The interior floor plan was modernized to support today open-plan living style, without losing the original design of the home.
