Clyde Hill Residence
Clyde Hill, WA
This house was an extensive remodel that took a bland 60's daylight basement ranch house fronted by a driveway and carport and transformed it into a home with style and character with a welcoming front approach of meandering stepping stones and lovely cottage garden landscaping. The new carriage style garage relocated to the north part of the property is connected to the original main house by a mud/utility room. A gabled front porch addition houses both the entry and the expanded kitchen. Timber framed gabled porches supported by massive stone piers add detail as well as outdoor living space to the previously blank rear fašade.
Walls were extensively relocated on the interior to create generous master and guest suites on the main floor and provide bedrooms, baths, exercise and family/media spaces at the lower floor. Wood trim including box beams, battered columns and wainscoting done in the craftsman style transform the interior. (Arts and Crafts Homes and the revival, Winter 2009)
