Sea Cliff Renovation with Dehn Bloom Design

Our newest completed project, in collaboration with Dehn Bloom Design, is a large home remodel in San Francisco’s Sea Cliff neighborhood. The homeowners saw potential to transform this new spec house into a well-crafted classical Cape Cod style design, calling on the inspiration and attention of a professional design team for support.

We worked closely with the Dehn Bloom team to achieve all of the homeowners’ desires and bring the home up to a high standard of design, craftsmanship and longevity. The “facelift” turned this basic spec house into a classical, highly designed and functional home in line with the clients’ vision. The home offers plenty of room for the clients’ three kids to stretch out and the parents can enjoy functional entertaining spaces overlooking San Francisco’s Presidio.

 

Remodeling-Ideas-Cedar-Shingle-Facade

 

To start, we consulted with John Goldman of Goldman Architects to create architectural plans for the exterior. We tore off the exterior all the way to sheathing, redid all siding and trim, and replaced the stucco with stained cedar shingles. The facade is now transformed into a traditional Cape Cod style home.

 

Cedar-Shingle-Brick-Entryway

 

After re-trimming the doors, we added this brick detail for more architectural design depth.

The team at Dehn Bloom Design knocked it out of the park with a contemporary nautical theme and thoughtful decorative details. They completely transformed the interior style to bring the home up to a crisp, modern style in keeping with the clients’ vision.

 

Kitchen-Remodeling-Ideas

 

We reconfigured the kitchen to be more functional and contemporary. The original island was large enough to seat only two people, so we added extra space to accommodate three more seats and additional counter space. The new island also features a convenient dishwasher, with the original dishwasher (next to the fridge) now serving as a backup.

 

Contemporary-White-Gray-Kitchen

 

Where there were once red stained cabinets, we built many new cabinets and painted the rest to match. We were able to preserve the original countertop stone while adjusting the layout to be more functional and ergonomic.

All lights were upgraded from fluorescent to LED, giving the whole kitchen a brighter and more pleasant feeling.

 

White-Home-Office-Cabinetry

 

We also love this cabinetry detail: a drop zone, mail organizer and charging station just outside the kitchen. The cabinets, drawers, cubbies and file cabinets help keep mess out of sight.

 

Blue-Barn-Door-Remodel

 

We completely re-trimmed the house and added this fun barn door for more privacy. The refurbished family room bar cabinets have a bright, contemporary feel.

 

Interior-Stairway-Remodel-Ideas

 

We simplified the original balustrade to create elegant, crafted lines.

 

White-Carerra-Marble-Bathroom-Remodel

 

The homeowners had a smart idea to install this decorative curtain all the way to the ceiling to hide the shower, instantly turning this downstairs kids’ bath into a powder room for guests. Carrara hex tile flooring matches the Carrara marble shower curb and vanity.

 

Bench-Seat-Reading-Nook

 

At the top of the staircase, this bench nook marks the beginning of the upstairs communal space. It’s the perfect place to kick off shoes before heading to the bedrooms on either side.

 

Grey-Cedar-Shingle-Facade

 

With thoughtful design attention and craftsmanship, this freestanding home is a gleaming jewel set in San Francisco’s Lobos Creek Valley. The family of five enjoys all the space they need in a transitional space reflecting their personal taste and lifestyle.

      So beautifully done; from the larger design themes to the smaller details. And the fact that you give the owners credit for their ideas shows the wonderful character of your firm. Congratulations!

      Beautiful Job, Jeff and company. The balustrade is something we would like to do in our renovation, (coming soon.) Is that something to discuss with our archetect or will your team handle that?

        Karen, the architect is the one who will help you design the balustrade. We look forward to working together on your upcoming project!
