Framed by mature Magnolias and Japanese Maples, this Modern Farmhouse complete with gardens seamlessly blends the best of rustic and contemporary design styles. A massive makeover of this incredible corner lot home created an additional bathroom and a den/office/bonus room. Located just across the street from Poinsett park it lies in a charming and quiet pocket of El Cerrito. This stunner was gutted to the studs, then meticulously and completely redeveloped. A bold re-imagining completely flipped the layout by moving the kitchen from the north to south side of the home. That move created a large open social space from the kitchen to the dining room into the living room. The original vaulted ceiling in the living room along with the original artisan rehabbed candelabra tops off this amazing effort by renovation Master Sue Rodgerson of Golden Road, Inc. To see before and after photos of this and other Golden Road projects search Golden Road, Inc. online.
