As much as we love the preservation of original features in a historical house—and as much as we could do without the addition of a dormer on this one—this remodel in Travis Heights does the old-outside/contemporary-inside thing (there’s probably a more technical name for it) is restrained and stylish.
The remodel is a project by Spaller Glover, a design/firm that specializes in homes with an old-world European bent. Built in 1932, the home seems to have some Tudor-ish aspects, but for the most part has has been renovated in an Alsatian-inspired style, with a half-timbered exterior and the characteristic front roofline.
The renovation included an addition, making the current home 2,716 square feet. It has three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms. In addition to an update of structural components, mechanical, plumbing, and electrical systems, the update created an an open living floor plan downstairs with a chef’s kitchen, Carrera countertops, and butler’s pantry.
