2015 Tour of Remodeled Homes : Part II

As I previously promised, this is part II of a set of posts devoted to the 2015 Tour of Remodeled Homes.
For this post, I had to go with my favorite of all the homes in the list. I seriously could not wait to share this beautiful home with you.
This 1941 traditional stunner is located on a very large corner lot in a very desirable neighborhood. What I liked the most about this home is that even though it was remodeled, the exterior remained the same. So when you drive or walk by, it does not stand out as a remodeled-home-that-looks-like-brand-new kind of home, but instead blends perfectly with the rest of this old, well-established neighborhood. So, let's take a look!
The curb appeal is always a plus, but after you walk through that door is where fabulousness meets home
The home owners moved to NC from the west coast and their goal was to modernize this house to accommodate their lifestyle, but at the same time they wanted to keep this home's originality. To achieve that, they kept the front part the house as a formal living space with a formal dining room, office and formal sitting room but the opened up the rear living areas to integrate the kitchen with the family room and blend with the outdoor living.
The chandelier wins the show! Your eyes go straight to it as soon as you walk in
It was love at first light for me
Sleek and elegant but so not traditional, it brings everything together
Formal living room that repeats the wainscoting detail from the dining room
No formal living room is complete without a piano
Great natural light makes this space perfect for an office space
It took me a few minutes to process so much beauty in just one place: black cabinets and carrara marble for this massive island
Industrial appliances plus black and white combo for the cabinets and countertops
The kitchen integrates this family room that whispers "relax" along with  furnishings  cream and taupe tones 
If this sculptural bike does not scream unexpected, I don't not what will
The family's room view: the new swimming pool  
Neutral palette for the master suite with a pop of red and black
Light, airy and with those French doors overlooking the backyard=perfect way to start your day
Wall to wall carpeted room with the black and white art that mirrors the bedding
The master bath was as beautiful and as spacious as the master's bedroom 
The same creamy tones and the carrara marble repeat throughout the fabulous bathroom 
Very spacious closet space off the master bath
Architectural detail added to this hallway bath with the arch above the shower
 And the best for last! What else could be added to this reno to make this home one of a kind? Take a guess...no, no it's not a home theater or a man cave or a game room, or  any of that! It's a wine cellar, yes, a wine cellar! (although for me was a WOW cellar). I mean... talk about a wow factor! An absolute show stopper.

Simply one-of-a-kind
This home was unbelievably beautiful! From the light features to the furniture, it was just so tastefully done that every space just draws you in and you feel that you want to stay there forever. With so many spaces indoors and outdoors to relax and enjoy yourself or gather with family and friends this new layout makes it so easy. But what I liked the best was that from all the homes I toured, this one was the only one the felt "more collected" than the others. The owners' art throughout the house and decorative elements like the bike in the kitchen, made this house feel more like a home. Even more, those details made it feel like a truly unique home; and that's why this one was my favorite.

I hope you enjoyed touring this home with me. I have more to share, so come back for part III!
