This 60-acre Maryland estate features a renovated carriage house to home office. Preserved and exposed wood beams give a warmth to the space paired with wide hardwood plank flooring. A wall of built-ins provide plenty of book storage steps from a heavy wooden desk with rolling leather chair. Two leather armchairs are positioned beside the desk on a colorful area rug.
This renovated kitchen is now located where the old dining room once was. A window was closed up to make room for the new stove and countertop area. A large kitchen island with double sink basins now separates the dining area from the kitchen, and provides a casual eating spot. Modern pendant lighting add a rich golden color to the dramatic black walls and red bar stools.
This newly renovated living room use to have an old non-functioning fireplace that has been replace with a large wall organizer and an electric fire screen. Updated wall colors, a modern couch with ottoman, and new lighting create a new living space. The wall dividing the living room and the hallway has been partially opened, as well as the archway between the living and dining rooms, creating a more open flow to the first floor.
The home’s curb appeal was updated by installing a new entry door and sidelights; new windows, including an enlarged opening for the second-floor living room; new fiber cement siding for the upper level; and a new garage door. The designers focused on increasing transparency and accentuating the horizontal character of the simple form.
In the old space, the sink was a stand alone vanity, not leaving any space for other appliances. With the new cabinets and sink, the Kitchen Cousins were able to put a new built-in dishwasher for the Grahams. This is a huge addition to the new kitchen. There was always room for a dishwasher, but no place to put one till now. As seen on HGTV's "Kitchen Cousins".
Rachel’s home was an undeniable find. Her four-level townhouse features four bedrooms, and each bedroom has it’s own private bathroom. It’s a dream for families and houseguests alike, but it wasn’t always a marvel. “I bought this house as-is, so the previous owner walked away without doing any repairs,” she recalls. The process of rehabilitation took years, and included everything from replacing faucets to building a bar. Three years after taking over, however, Rachel feels the moment of completion is in sight. “I only have a few more spaces to hang paintings before I’m completely out of space,” she says.
