For the past 6 ½ months, the team at Pinnacle Group Renovations has been transforming a 2500 sq ft bungalow in the estate community of Pump Hill. This full home renovation is now complete and we couldn’t be happier with the spectacular result!
The home was gutted to the studs, incorporating several structural changes as well as an extensive eco-component which included the installation of a new furnace, hot water tanks and window systems. The ceilings were reinsulated and the exterior walls were thickened to improve the insulation value of the home. In addition, substantial open-cell spray foam was used to provide increased insulation to the outside wall cavities. We conservatively estimate that we have reduced this home’s carbon foot print by a significant 40%. As well, we recycled an extraordinary 10.5 tons of renovation debris! We are confident this project will be another award winning design recognized at this year’s upcoming SAM Awards.
Entrance into this crisp, contemporary design inspired home is through the solid hemlock custom front door where the grand foyer hosts an expansive, vaulted ceiling. Here you are greeted by an incredible floor to ceiling double sided fire place providing views from the foyer to the complete open concept great room.
The newly designed and constructed soaring 2 storey dormer found in the great room brings the outside views in, perfectly framing the magnificent backyard pine. There is liberal use of windows throughout the design of the home, capturing natural lighting wherever possible.
The kitchen boasts refined custom espresso maple cabinetry, triple build up granite counter tops, and an oversized island with seating for four. The complete appliance package was outfitted by Jerome’s, Calgary’s finest appliance supplier. A butler’s pantry equipped with its own dishwasher provides the transition between the kitchen and vaulted dining/flex room. Capturing the site lines of the two way fireplace, the open concept of this dining/flex room allows for the opportunity to transform it into anything from a formal dining room to a theater, den, home office or library.
The luxurious master retreat incorporates an impressive two-way fireplace, strategically located above the relaxing soaker tub, sharing views from the master bedroom to the ensuite. Adjacent to the soaker tub is a 6 ft x 4 ft floor to ceiling glass tiled shower with dual shower heads. Dual sinks can be found in the 10 ft long custom vanity featuring exquisite leathered-granite vanity tops.
A secondary bedroom was built inclusive with its own 3 piece bath and vanity allowing for a guest bedroom providing a welcoming sanctuary for visiting family and friends.
The rear entry to this home was completely reconfigured to accept a walk-in laundry area and sizeable mudroom complete with under counter washer and dryer.
The stairwell leading to the lower level was relocated from the far end of the house to a more central location and features a gorgeous maple, radius tread, wrought iron railing system designed by Prestige Railing. A games room area and dedicated exercise room were created on the lower level, still leaving more than half of the generous 2500 sq ft basement to be developed in the future if desired. A complete floor plan was created by our architectural designer ensuring that future bath, media and bedrooms all meshed with mechanical placements.
The entire home was also smart wired with a completely integrated sound, media and security system with recessed TV niches provided in both the great room and master retreat.
To further enhance this home, the exterior was painted and the overhead garage doors, roofing, windows, gutters and eavestroph were replaced, maintaining a subtle yet sophisticated estate feel. The exterior may be subtle and unassuming; however one step through the front door and it becomes quickly apparent; this home is a spectacular estate bungalow with the very best of new technology and design welcoming our homeowner and guests.
We would like to extend a sincere thanks and congratulations to all of the trades, suppliers and Pinnacle staff who contributed to this fine project and a very special thank-you to our valued client for allowing us the privilege of transforming their home into their favourite place to be! We look forward to posting our before and after gallery of this prominent home renovation to our website in the near future.
