Locals + Culture

recently, a few of us gathered for an evening drink at this sprawling upper avenues home...

We imagined all of the possible ways in which this lovely (and perfectly located) space that we recently listed could be transformed into something special. The secluded backyard with stunning valley views, for instance, might well benefit from a hot tub (the perfect spot in which to take in iridescent orange sunsets), a treehouse for stargazing, or a vegetable garden surrounded by flower-laden terraces.

Inside, the kitchen is already perfectly situated to take advantage of the aforementioned views, making ingredient prep that much more enjoyable. The addition of a breakfast nook, however, might put this already lovely spot over the top. Plenty of space downstairs, meanwhile, ensures that a yoga studio, art room, and home office all remain on the table.

The main suite already offers stately lofted ceilings but the private deck of the ensuite bath might be improved with the addition of an outdoor shower. For their part, the upstairs bedrooms could be left alone or transformed into a second suite, replete with even more views of the city below.

In short, there are myriad ways to turn these solid bones into a dream home. And, should this list of ideas not inspire you, give us a call and we’ll gladly rattle off a few more…
