We renovated a 1975 split level home in a wooded area of Reston, VA; a home for a large family of six.
Split level home was not an easy task to take on due to its strategic lot location and expanded space on either sides or back.
The design team offered a master suite expansion over the existing first floor (living room, dining room and kitchen) as their best option of expansion. This act offered a private and secluded space for parents, while giving the children three middle level bedrooms and a bath of their own.
While maintaining everything intact in main level, popping up the entire roof of the first floor and adding this 25’x35’ addition over it was not a simple task.
Large Master bedroom suite with seating space, with vaulted ceiling and skylight, lots of sun light and wide plank maple, Bordeaux finish wood floor as breath taking.
Implementing a separate new heating and cooling system was essential for this new space and much challenging.
His and hers closets were amenities they did not experience for a long time.
We have used bright paint colors to compliment wood floors and bedroom set.
Creating a step effect glass block as a privacy wall for the commode area was a smart choice.
A new 11’x12’ Master bathroom suite with a large shower stall, built in bench and niches covered with flagstone tiles, tea for two soaking whirlpool, a long double vanity space covered with granite top and fancy fixtures kept this bathroom a sacred place for her.
