About This Project

The MRCxEMD team was tasked with giving an uninspired 1930 Westfield, NJ home a full home exterior and interior renovation for a wine- and food-loving active couple and their two golden retrievers. With the home roots and the clients leaning towards traditional, the teams focused on enhancing and matching all of the original charm down to the smallest detail; even new trim was designed with historical accuracy. The team worked to merge a fresh, inspired aesthetic with this traditional base. Carefully selected finishes, millwork, lighting, hardware and furnishings accomplished this. With careful planning, we took home from 2,335 square feet to 2,875 feet, taking family function into account for the additional square footage. A first floor addition in the back of the home was used to create indoor/outdoor flow to the patio and new outdoor fireplace and add space for the family room, mudroom and kitchen. A roomy kitchen equipped with custom cabinets and a large island, arched brick range hood feature, full custom bar and banquette seating gave our clients plentiful room to cook and entertain. A mudroom with generous custom storage, a dog-accessible door and a dog-themed powder room make the side entrance purposeful and whimsically classic. The 2nd floor addition created a new primary bedroom suite with walk in closets as well as more space for a gym and guest bedroom. A new full basement was added below the addition and finished to create additional entertaining space, complete with a full bathroom and temperature controlled wine room. Substantial revisions to the exterior, all in natural cedar and stone to match the historical roots of the home, give this home the traditional fresh aesthetic both on the inside and outside.
