Leschi traditional-family-room


This house had been deteriorating and in use as a rental until 2005 when a series of renovations were begun to erase years of neglect. An awkward daylight basement was gutted down to bare earth to create a guest suite, extra kitchen, storage, laundry, and media room. The walls of the main floor were re-plastered to eliminate a heavy stucco texture. The kitchen and powder room were gutted. And a breakfast room was re-imagined as a small TV room and lounge off the kitchen. One of the four bedrooms on the top floor was converted to a home office while the smallest of the bedrooms was converted to a walk-in-closet.

Thank you. Easy answer, the hardware for the bottom cabinets came with the house. Those were the original refrigerators. I did just find these online:

And even more handsome:

Good luck!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Glass doors help minimize how much you'll need to dust the displays. Comb architectural salvage and antique stores for beautiful leaded glass, or consider having an artisan craft some custom glass doors.
