Belvedere Island Home
In this historic Belvedere home, two small bedrooms were replaced with a new kitchen, dining room, and powder room. Widened doorways and new oak floors link these spaces to the adjacent living room. The need to preserve the historic windows, with sills that fell below counter height, was resolved by “floating” the prep and cleanup sinks in front of them. The pantry and appliances were placed at the back of the kitchen to create an uncluttered space that opens to the bay views. A mix of old trim, crisp white cabinets, floating shelves, and a marble tile splash gives the space a bright, modern feel. A new master bathroom, master bedroom, laundry, and two guest bathrooms, were part of a phase II remodel, not shown.
