French Reclaimed Treasure, Villanova, PA 23 photos

The vision for our client’s new home was to replicate the timeless, rusticated European country style that appears as if it was built years ago - with the use of stucco, board & batten siding, exposed bricks, and integral salvaged timbers. European sourced antiques - such as the exterior doors, outfitted with restored oversized door hardware, dovecote weathervane, copper cupola, French reclaimed stone fountain and mantel are just a few pieces that contribute to the timeless architecture.
The owners downsized to one-floor living space designed to fit their entertaining needs. A flexible dining room was created with the ease of moving furniture around to accommodate the occasion. Custom dining tables double as library tables and the room transforms to a casual offset from the great room, creating a more intimate area to gather.
Hanging the original barn door salvaged from the historic barn, divides the great room & kitchen area as a reverent token of the estate. The open kitchen was designed with an adjacent service kitchen, enabling the owner to entertain large groups while hiding the mess.
Reclaimed timbers, sandblasted and re-stained anchor the vaulted ceiling with a state of the art A/V, Lutron lighting and security system.

Master Bath

The vision for this project was to create one bathroom suite consisting of his and her private rooms, joined together by a large steam shower. Both baths are outfitted with radiant floor heat, custom lighting control system - which allows the homeowners to set different moods & task lighting, as well as motion-lights placed underneath each vanity for evening illumination and custom sound system.
European lighting and plumbing fixtures, in connection with the finish palette and custom designed cabinetry, provide a timeless look. The darker slabs for the vanity top and tub surround provide a complimenting contrast to otherwise cream colored tones. Diagonal shapes in the vanity door and drawer profiles are repeated on a custom mirror surround.
Central to her bathroom is the soaking tub featuring a cantileered shelf providing space for candles & toiletries and perfect views to relax & watch TV. Alongside the tub is access to a private quiet patio with waterfalls and custom outdoor shower, creating the ultimate spa experience in the privacy of your own home.
