The Details

Challenge

Located near Forest Park in St. Louis, steeped in rich history, its street name Kingsbury Place is an interesting sidelite as it is named after prominent land holder James W. Kingsbury in 1902.

This three story, lengthy and meticulous renovation and restoration presented may challenges as we attempted to provide modern day conveniences while keeping the historical elements intact throughout.

All three levels of the homes plaster walls were demolished to the stud with all new electrical and HVAC systems installed and brought up to current code requirements.

Original hard wood floors throughout the second and third floors were restored to their intended luxurious high end finish.

Each staircase was restored to resonate the beauty of the grandness they provide to the home.

Solution

The existing kitchen was small and underutilized. By integrating the existing rear entry room and opening the expansive foyer at the front, the kitchen is now suitable for even the most fastidious gourmet chef. We installed custom cabinetry throughout and built an elongated center island for functionality. High end plumbing fixtures further add to the attraction of the new space.

The new master bedroom suite was designed to appear seamless to the existing layout. Removing walls to incorporate the new master bath and the new master suite now extends the full length of the home with all new high end features in the master bath.

The third floor was designed to be a play room for the homeowners new twin daughters. Leaving the existing footprint intact, this open plan provides plenty of space for fun.

 

Benefit

The new home design honored the architectural features of the home while updating the systems resulting in a comfortable yet sophisticated home with an abundance of historical value.
