This designer Bellevue remodeling project is the definition of built to suit. The empty nester owners were ready to turn their Bellevue home they had lived in for 20 years into their dream home with some extensive remodeling plans. Every aspect of the home was impacted in this Bellevue remodeling project as well as some significant site work changes. The tri-level home was dated and showing its age and they wanted a more contemporary and sophisticated look. Some noteworthy aspects of this
Most of the main floor interior walls were removed to create a great room look. The ceilings were vaulted and skylights installed to add natural light to the space. New heated flagstone flooring was installed that extended out to the new patio areas in the front and back yards of the house. The kitchen was re located and the new custom made cherry cabinets with granite counter tops look great with the flagstone floors. The center piece of this Bellevue remodeling project is the shoji screen door that was installed in the dining room and led out to the back patio and beautifully park like landscaped yard. The door itself was three doors that opened from the center and slid into a pocket on either side.
The short stair run to the upper floor was tastefully re worked in Mahogany treads and risers with a simple but elegant steel and glass rail. The living quarters on the upper floor were configured to accommodate a home office, media room, and craft area. The master bath was finished extensively with travertine slabs and tile that evoke what you might see in a nice Mexican resort where the owners enjoyed vacationing. The powder room got its own unique flair with an illuminated glass sink.
The basement remodeling for this project was mostly cosmetic and centered around another home office space and guest bedroom.
