Compartmentalized to Revitalized Spacious Executive Bungalow
The client family wanted to update this 1800 sq. ft. compartmentalized bungalow and transform it into an open concept, executive bungalow that fully supported their blended family’s needs and would accommodate future lifestyle changes, inclusive of aging in place considerations.

• Add flex room (laundry/office/hobby room)
• Incorporate Aging in Place initiatives
• Amplify lighting
• Revitalize interior to reflect a transitional design
How the Criteria Was Met
Through an extensive design discovery process, Pinnacle collaborated with this client to fully uncover how they wanted to live in their home both now and in the future. Walls were removed on the main floor to fully open the kitchen, family room and dining spaces. Features will include a vintage fireplace complete with quarry stone and a custom built hutch that connects with the dining area. The kitchen is designed for ease of entertaining and storage will be increased using an expansive wall of cabinetry. A spacious master suite with an impressive walk-in closet and luxurious ensuite was included in the design. A flex room now exists directly off of the master bedroom which will be used as a main floor laundry area, office and hobby room. Aging in Place initiatives were incorporated including widening doorways, hallways and the stairway. Extensive LED lighting will be added to dramatically enhance the living space. The lower level of this home was completely gutted, with the exception of one bedroom and an existing bathroom which will both be updated. The basement will accommodate two guest rooms, a games room inclusive of a billiards area and custom bar. The transformation in progress will create a stunning transitionally designed executive home that will successfully support the changing needs of this client family for years to come.
