With a ceiling clad in western red cedar light-filled contemporary bedrooms and a calming atmosphere this home in San Mateo California reinvents the iconic Eichler home design in its own inimitable fashion!
To further improve ventilation without sacrificing space the old light shaft was replaced by a cool walkable glass slab on the second level. The attic-level bedrooms enjoy a flood of natural light thanks to the presence of six roof windows even as the original timber structure here was preserved and restored. Repairs to the roof were carried out to improve the insulation of the house and avoid any future leaks while a simple color palette and Scandinavian-style décor give the home an inviting and polished appeal.
Reinvigorating classic Victorian terrace homes and extending the living space into the garden or the backyard is increasingly becoming a popular choice among homeowners stretching from Madison to Melbourne.
