In the 1980s, the kitchen and family room in this Tudor-style home were remodeled, removing period detailing and its character along with it. The new owners wanted a warm, comfortable environment that was not only a better fit with the residence's original aesthetic, but also a place where their family could really live.
Zumaooh began the transformation by switching the kitchen and family-room areas, adding space from an unnecessary back hall. In the original plan, the beautiful grounds on three sides of the house were closed off visually. The makeover continued by adding large windows above the kitchen sink and French doors to the patios on either side, which connect the residence to the beautiful landscape and play areas immediately outside.
All of the new detailing is consistent with the original house and adds some needed character. We softened arch openings and used reclaimed beams from an old barn, dark wood cabinetry, and divided-lite windows that reference the original architecture.
