Private Residence in downtown Savannah
This private residence is a historic row house in Savannah’s National Landmark District. Originally built in 1853, the home is currently being rehabilitated and fully renovated. The buildings exterior will be fitted with new wooden shutters and a new palette of historic colors while modern kitchen, baths, master and guest suites are being introduced on the interior. New Plumbing, HVAC, Electrical and lighting controls will provide updated and efficient systems to support more modern lifestyles. The Historic fireplaces and wood floors will be retained and refinished throughout the home.
Period defining, interior ornamental elements are being preserved, including original “tromp l’oiel” which was discovered while removing old wall paper. Applied as the first decorative finish on the Stair Hall walls, it remained hidden beneath layers of paint and patches for decades. The owner has committed to restoring the original paneled marble faux finish. A Paintings Conservator has been engaged to carefully remove the layers and restore its original unique splendor.
The Carriage House will include a studio apartment and provide off street parking for the owner’s use. Verandas are being constructed in the rear courtyard serving both the Main House and the Carriage House. Stairs will carry the residents down to a newly landscaped private urban garden.
Private Residence at Palmetto Bluff
This private residence, with four bedrooms, four full baths, and two half baths, is located in the South Village at Palmetto Bluff. Intricate interior trim is found throughout the house along with a variety of specialized rooms geared towards family interests including a sewing room, media/game room, dog washing station, gourmet kitchen, and an office. A spiral staircase leads to the attic, a unique feature of the home as it is hidden behind a bookcase. The project is expected to be completed in December 2011.
Highlands Police Station
This project is the re-purpose/ re-model of an existing 3,300 sq.ft. cast concrete and masonry structure. The Town of Highlands purchased the property and will be re-locating their Police Department to the renovated building. Work will include all new mechanical systems, roof structure and program details specific to law enforcement. The building will also undergo a dramatic change in appearance with the use of native stone veneer and traditional mountain architectural details. The new Police Station has been designed as part of a municipal campus including Town Hall, Town Annex and ancillary buildings. We also recently completed the addition /re-model of the historic Town Hall.
