Hamilton Residence

Ranch Revival

This is the third home we've built for the Hamiltons, but in this case the first addition/remodel project.  Ted and Jackie purchased this Maitland property from the original owner that moved there in 1956.  At the time the home was considered to be quite luxurious and high-tech.  With a price tag of about $17,000, it cost considerably more than other homes in the area.

The existing home has what we call, "good bones", worthy of being updated in the spirit of how the designers from 1956 might create a home today.  The game plan for the project started with the addition of a wing onto the rear of the house for the new Master suite.  The addition also includes a covered Lanai and creates a nice outdoor courtyard.  Within the existing part of the house several walls were removed to open up the space and improve circulation.  A new kitchen features a tremendous island with modern appliances and cabinets.

The most dramatic design feature is the solution we came up with to raise the ceilings throughout the center of the home. Neighbors were waiting outside the front door at the start of the home show. Friends that had seen the "before" were stunned by the transformation. It's so gratifying to work with such wonderful customers and be able to update this unique home in a way that respects its history.
