At the front of the home, new dormers were designed with deep overhangs. The curb appeal was also improved with the help of Living Space Landscape, by introducing multiple levels to the garden.

At the rear of the home, there’s a peaceful deck with an outdoor fireplace that overlooks the rest of the backyard. From this angle you can also see a large window on the top floor that was added to the back of the home.

Inside and straight off the deck is the dining area. A long glass dining table is surrounded by a mixture of chairs, and a sideboard along the wall provides extra storage.

Next to the dining table is the kitchen, with glossy gray cabinets and a central island. Just off the kitchen and built into a small extension is a custom wine cellar.
