Otsego Residence (aka "Lena Headey's Off-Camera Castle")

https://www.dwell.com/article/lena-headeys-off-camera-castle-4b9ddab3

Envision Design-Build worked closely with actress Lena Headey, known best for her role as Cersei Lannister on HBO's 'Game of Thrones,' to completely renovate this midcentury fixer-upper with less than delightful details like faux-turf indoors and out, a low-ceilinged living room featuring a massive curved bar with integral pizza oven, and asbestos-filled ceilings.

The renovated home was featured in Dwell Magazine’s 2016 Focus on Furniture edition (“Lena Headey’s Off-Camera Castle” by Kelly Vencill Sanchez/Published by Dwell September 11, 2016), as well as the July 2017 online editions of Time Magazine, Curbed Magazine, the Los Angeles Times, People Magazine, and many others.

Surrounded by white double-sided horizontal fencing, the midcentury modern-style house was decamped from its original 1950s design with a new second-story addition. Classic brickwork and reclaimed hemlock siding play up the differences between the old and new styles. Privacy hedges, hanging wall gardens and drought tolerant landscaping fill out the grounds, which also include a new saltwater pool and outdoor shower.

The open-plan layout features vaulted ceilings, bright artistic tile, hand laid herringbone-patterned reclaimed white oak floors, and prominent exposed wood beams in an antiqued-rustic gray. The reimagined kitchen, which features a mirror and alabaster backsplash with an island/bar, opens to a family room and outside through huge Fleetwood sliding pocket doors. The mid-century modern aesthetic carries throughout the 2,900-square-foot house, with a prominent oil-rubbed bronze chandelier hanging above the living room space and classic white hexagonal tile in the shower floors.
