‘This down-to-the-studs renovation of a classic Victorian beauty blends timeless elegance and sophistication with modern enhancements and upgrades throughout. Using the existing footprint of the house, Cardea excavated at the ground floor level, installed dormers at the top floor, installed all new windows, and revised the floor plan to create a very spacious 5 Bedroom, 4.5 bath home. The project included a full seismic upgrade with a new foundation and steel beams installed throughout to create the large open spaces. As part of installing new electrical, plumbing, and HVAC systems, we managed the layout and pre-wire for Sonos audio system with Polk Audio ceiling mounted speakers allowing our client to truly entertain in style.
Cardea worked closely with the clients to select, design and detail interior finishes throughout, including Carrera, Calacatta, and Caesarstone stone counter surfaces, Ann Sacks tile, and select rift and quartered white oak flooring. Custom cabinetry and built-in shelving was installed and special care and attention was taken to create traditional woodworking details to match the style of the house.’
