A split-level home presents many renovation challenges due to its deliberately misaligned floor levels. Curb-appeal and function often suffer when it comes to creating a successful split-level home remodel. This remodel is an exception.
One would be hard-pressed to recognize the pre-renovation, non-descript, 1960’s vintage, split-level beginnings of this new colonial style inspired home makeover. From the front, the changes appear to be minor curb-appeal enhancements without much impact to the homes overall scale. Beyond the front façade however, lies an extreme remodel -more than doubling the existing interior floor area. While most of the addition is in the rear of the house, half of the new floor area is on the second floor. Through a clever arrangement of stairs, the existing split-level floor plan was able to receive an extensive 2nd floor bedroom expansion.
On the 1st floor and lower level an entirely new plan layout was created to include a full complement of contemporary lifestyle rooms including; Entry Foyer, Mudroom, Recreation Room with Game room, Office/Den, Dining Room, and an open concept Kitchen with Family Room facing the back terrace.
