OUT WITH THE OLD
Being a bay area real estate photographer I had the opportunity to document a total home remodel for a client in Walnut Creek, CA. My client had wanted to do a large-scale remodel project as a gift to her father. The entire home was completely renovated from top to bottom. When I say everything I mean everything, even going as far as all the windows, landscaping and even the garage door was updated. The father joked that all he did was add the furniture. In total there were 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and all the common areas.
The kitchen was sharply dressed in a grey stone counter top that contrasted well with the granite back splash, stainless steel appliances and white cabinetry.
The whole home was resurfaced with hardwood flooring and it was a great touch in the formal dining and sitting areas of the home.
The family room featured those same hardwood floors but with an updated stone fireplace with a sleekly built mantle and contrasting stone hearth. The new sliding doors looked out into the freshly landscaped backyard with pool and hot tub.
Heading up the magnificently redone sweeping staircase with new iron supports you came to a landing in the upstairs hallway that carried the same flooring and iron as the stairs for a very nice cohesive touch.
Two guest rooms and a converted room into an office flanked one side of the home
On the other side of the home was the guest bathroom and master suite. The master bathroom was very well done. The entry into the bathroom was a beautiful rolling door attached to a metal track. Upon entry into the master bath you were drawn to so many beautiful elements. The large soaker tub beneath the windows, or the swanky double vanity with can lighting next to the huge walk in shower or the intricate granite tile pattern flooring that you just knew took a certain level of craftsmanship.
Walking back down the hall you were able to see the wooden front door that matched the flooring through out and another intricate tile floor in the foyer.
This home was a showstopper and one day if it ever hits the market its going to be primed to make the new owners a tidy investment.
