The gorgeous home in the woods is blessed with a variety of planet-friendly features like the photovoltaic panels that provide it with all the power it needs a rainwater harvesting system that recycles and replenishes the local water source and passive heating and cooling design that keeps the internal temperature moderate. These green technologies not only cut back on the carbon footprint of the house but also make sure that the surrounding greenery and ecosystem is left largely untouched and pollution-free.
Sometimes a simple extension or addition is all it takes to turn a dark and boring old home into a stylish modern hub fit for an urbane family. Once a grand Victorian villa and then a more modest traditional British house was in need of an urgent upgrade as its homeowners wanted to transform its ambiance and appeal completely.
With a spacious master suite also embracing a black and white color palette a gorgeous guest room that doubles as a home library and a kids’ room with a space-savvy loft bed this is an urban residence that perfectly blends form function and inviting warmth.
A metallic stairway leads you to the top floor that houses the exquisite master bedroom with its chevron headboard wall and imaginative lighting. A spa-style bathroom and additional bedrooms complete a loft that is both welcoming and a touch ‘edgy’ at the same time.
This was accomplished by using a custom-crafted box made out of sterling boards that sits at the heart of the revamped apartment. The cool box holds a dashing kitchen in black on the outside a loft bed that acts as the bedroom and a home workstation that offers ample storage space.
The last few years have seen home makeovers shift from large-scale remodels to smart additions extensions and nifty revamps that simply extend the living area and add a kitchen or bedroom wherever necessary.
The main building contains the living area along with the kitchen dining room and other social spaces while the second structure holds the master suite along with the guest quarters. A gorgeous connector links both the structures and also offers a wonderful protected walkway of sorts that lets those inside enjoy the wonderful ocean views outside. Another advantage of this site plan is the creation of the sheltered courtyard that is carefully protected from harsh ocean winds on gusty days.
