This split-level home built in 1939 came directly to us from a wonderful woman and fan of Bee Renovated that raised her family here and called this place home for more than 40 years. On a quiet street, just down from the Kensington Farmers’ market and Colusa Circle shops, it is located in a well established neighborhood surrounded by folks that still look out for one another and take the time to stop and say “hello.”
To begin the transformation, the fantastic traditional architecture of this home has been enhanced and brought current with Bee Renovated’s color palette and contemporary fixtures. The existing kitchen has been reconfigured to include a spacious peninsula with casual dining space and features new stainless pro-style appliances, stone counters and new beautiful cabinetry. The former isolated formal dining room has been opened up to create a more modern approach to living that flows seamlessly into the new kitchen…making it perfect for special occasions or casual sit-down family dinners.
The 2 bedrooms located off the main hall have been completely restyled as has the primary bedroom that is located on its own private level with a view of San Francisco. The existing bath has been expanded to accommodate a new second sink, new tub/shower, Carrera marble floors and sophisticated tile choices. Hardwood floors throughout have been refinished using our signature “wet process” and rich espresso stain.
A fantastic floor to ceiling bay window adds to the abundance of windows throughout this home that have all been replaced providing energy efficiency and spaces that are filled with natural light...one of this home’s greatest features.
An interior laundry room and office, not included in the square footage, now adds that extra bonus space leaving the rest of the home with plenty of room to spread out and enjoy. The yard now has the addition of a large entertainment deck, new landscaping and substantial grass area for play.
This home is now delivered with a clean bill of health including; clear pest, new sewer lateral, new energy efficient windows, new high efficiency furnace and earthquake retro fit just to name a few.
Bee Renovated has created a wonderful home that is an artful blend of traditional architecture and modern improvements….the perfect combination for happy living.
