The remodel of this residence artfully pairs traditional Victorian details with modern design.

The main living spaces boast high, vaulted ceilings and large sliding doors that open up to city views, while period details like Victorian trim and ceiling medallions enrich the entryway, linking to its historical facade. A modern staircase, framed in blackened steel and glass, creates a visual link across floors.

The redesigned rear facade, featuring Western Red Cedar siding and large glazed sections create the home’s connection to the outdoors. Custom cabinetry and stone features provide sleek, functional storage solutions. Advanced technologies and sustainable systems like solar panels and a Tesla Powerwall seamlessly integrate, making this home a testament to the harmonious blend of past and present.
