Washington Park residence: an exciting new adventure

Razing an existing home that is beautifully sited but flawed from both a design and functional standpoint to build completely new is always an exciting adventure.

Today, a stately residence graces the view site. Voluminous two-story living spaces and generous banks of windows and French doors frame the view. Of exceptional design note: an elegant entry that features a curving, cantilevered staircase. Upstairs: dual master suites.

Of special construction note: Given the location of the steep-slope site, access was extremely limited—and very tight in terms of equipment and materials delivery. A supremely organized logistical approach was key to success. Special care was also given to the protection of a mature Evergreen on the site.
