Restored Carmel Treasure

This circa 1920 home needed some TLC to restore its original charm while updating its infrastructure. Care was taken to honor the home’s vintage roots. Most walls and ceilings are bathed in soft white with timeless accents of stone, tile and wood. In an upper story bedroom, a buttery yellow enhances the effect of natural light. Spray foam insulation brought the home into the 21st century of comfort and energy efficiency, and improved its structural integrity for future generations..
