CRAFTSMAN REVIVAL

This 100-year-old craftsman was fit for a remodel as it was originally designed for what is now considered an outmoded way of life. Common living spaces were separated into compartmentalized rooms and the kitchen wasn’t large enough to be the primary gathering space in the home. Deferred maintenance and repairs made the structure ripe for improvements.

We brought this traditional 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom residence into the modern age with an open floor plan, contemporary features and increased connections to outdoor spaces, to better take advantage of Santa Barbara’s temperate climate. We opened passages between rooms to create better flow and reconfigured the kitchen to become the central hub of the household.

The new kitchen features a center island with countertop seating and an adjacent dining room. A generous row of sliding accordion doors now connect the kitchen with an expansive outdoor deck, inviting natural light and a seamless connection to an outdoor dining and entertainment area. High-end features including honed marble countertops, Viking appliances, custom cabinetry and contemporary fixtures modernize the space.

A spacious master suite with en suite bathroom, offers ocean views best enjoyed from a private second-story patio.

The addition of glazing throughout the residence results in a bright, spacious residence that is custom crafted for California living, while original features like the 100-year-old staircase, restored fireplace and traditional detailing retain the authentic character of the home.
