Built in the 1950s, this existing 1,100 sf. single-family residence had 2 bedrooms and a small, dark kitchen. The client wanted to add a Master Bedroom suite and build a new, modern kitchen. So that the new kitchen could be on the same level as the existing residence, the existing garage was demolished, excavated down four feet and rebuilt on the lower level. The 570 sf. addition consists of a new gourmet kitchen having a center island with prep sink, quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances and glass-fronted cabinets. With direct access through French doors to a new deck in the back yard, the new Master Bedroom / Bath suite has a walk-in closet, soaking tub and a separate, glass-enclosed shower.
