HEART OF THE HOME TOUR 2006

This beautiful 1926 Mediterranean home was designed by renowned architect William Schirmer. His masterful use of proportion, arches and natural light are seen throughout the house. Typical of that period, the original kitchen was small, designed to be used only by a maid. There were additional small rooms for a butler's pantry and sleeping quarters. Architect, Jason Kaldis combined all of these spaces to create a beautiful chef's kitchen and breakfast area. The kitchen's enlarged windows showcase the spectacular view and open the space to increased natural light. Honoring the house's historical protected status, Jason carefully matched elements from the original architect’s design. The renovated breakfast room echoes the den with similar crossbeams and intricate hand-painted designs. Additionally, the cast stone stove hood replicates the style of the fireplace in the living room.
