This 1990’s modified 2- Story home was certainly adequate and reasonably functional for this young family . However, it had been the homeowners dream to add a Music Room/Library with dramatic views to the front and back with tall ceilings, large window wall design, and a 2 sided fireplace where peace and harmony could be found during the hectic week and family and friends could gather during Holidays. CollegeCityDesign/Build took this project from start to finish through design, selections, and the build process to provide a beautiful end-result for our client.
We designed a 25’ X 25’ Room Addition over full basement to house the Library/Music room on the main floor right off the Kitchen, separated by a cased opening it provides easy access to this Wing of the house. The Library is quite the showpiece with floor to ceiling cabinets, structural exposed beams in 12’ vaulted ceilings and floor to ceiling windows with a wide Walnut Hardwood Floor as you step down the rounded steps and enter this cozy sunken space complete with Walk- up Bar. The contrast between classic cherry cabinetry, gorgeous wide plank walnut hardwood floor, and the venetian plaster wall finishes make this space truly stunning! The matching chandeliers and cabinet hardware add another layer of traditional style to this space.
The lower level of this addition was connected with the existing LL Space and provided just enough additional space to be able to do exactly what the homeowners wanted- Create a cinema style home theater area with actual box office/ concession stand entrance and a pottery studio and dark room for the family hobbies along with a rec room large enough to house a tournament size billiards Table, and walk behind bar with 2 pub style tables for seating and board games!
