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!
The new addition contains within it a kitchen that becomes the ‘social zone’ of the house along with the dining room and the living area. A series of sliding glass doors connect the home with the central courtyard and the rear pool retreat that also contains a spacious wooden deck barbecue zone and outdoor dining space.
A new basement level was added and the existing roof was extended creating two additional levels in the limited space available. The light-filled basement that extends into the private rear yard contains the new open plan living area along with the kitchen and dining room.
It is Kirkwood McCarthy who managed to pull off this challenging makeover as they went about revamping upgrading and giving in a whole new lease on life! The conversion is truly amazing with the new three-story two-bedroom house making the most of every inch of space on offer.
