Country Club Dutch Colonial

This charming 1920's Dutch Colonial home remodel is located within a historically protected country club neighborhood. While staying within strict remodeling parameters, this home underwent a massive transformation, from a curb appeal boosting front elevation, to a large addition off the back. The homeowner wanted a golf simulator installed in the basement, which required a 14' ceiling height. The house was lifted off its foundation in order to dig downward for the deeper basement. A rounded back patio creates architectural interest from both the inside and from the exterior. The home features unique architectural elements such as a reclaimed Chicago brick that was added to the main level and basement, a rounded built-in dining banquette, and beautiful arched doorways throughout. Black painted windows provide a crisp contrast to the white sheetrock returns and quarter sawn oak floors add to its timeless appeal. The home appears no larger from the street view, blending beautifully with its historic neighborhood, but now offers the space and modern conveniences within its expansive interior.
