Cabin John, Maryland
2018 Regional CotY Award Winner, Entire House $750,001 to $1,000,000
This stately Colonial was situated on a beautiful natural setting on the outside, but the home’s doors opened to cramped and stuffy spaces inside. The clients wanted a design that accommodated their busy lives and had a welcoming but impressive setting for entertaining. Rooms were stripped back to their bones and spaces opened up for a natural flow. Most improvements were made by reconfiguring the layout and crafting details. Only the kitchen and garage were expansions of the footprint. Subtle luxury touches such as high-gloss finishes, elegant archways, and striking marble elevates the mood. Improvements to access, greater energy efficiency, and sensible storage space convey an assured serenity to daily life.
