Inspired by a small town that radiates a nostalgic charm, this home transpired from within the local town itself. The town is built around glimpses of the past that have been re-purposed. There is a spirit of togetherness as you shop at specialized boutiques and pick up vegetables at the local farmers market. An old train station that used to drive a successful economy is converted into a charming restaurant. Our mission is to emanate these feelings of home and sentimentality. This vision became reality through the use of a variety of refurbished looking finishes, and furniture and material selections that promote comfort and relaxation. Exposed brick walls, stained wood beams and terracotta-colored paver tiles resemble those found on the streets and in buildings around town. The kitchen is the heart of the home, where family traditions are honored and rediscovered. A unique tile reminiscent of antique tiles brings this incredibly accommodating kitchen to life. A story is told through remarkable pieces such as distressed bowls, a weathered shutter, an old Hollywood floor lamp, an antique book, and a reclaimed wood barn door. Custom wood furniture pieces made by a craftsman boosts charm and character. The ability to unwind is guaranteed in each of the spacious bedrooms and in the master bathroom – where one can find 3 different shower heads in a spa-like shower. Space planning promotes socializing and family time, but also recognizes private spaces as being essential to the homeowner. Have a family game night in the bonus room, get cozy with friends in the media room, or be captivated by a good book in the study. All of these elements come together to create an aesthetically pleasing and functional dwelling with personality – a place to call “home sweet home.”
