This family dreamed of owning a Queen Anne Victorian home. But this Kenwood gem, built in 1892, wasn’t exactly the perfect fit for a modern family with three children.

The small, square island is topped with white stone with brown striations, matching the rest of the counters. The underhung sink is under a generous row of windows, which are topped by open display shelving. The rectangular cream glass and brushed silver pendant lights hang over the sink, and the matching chandelier illuminates the island.

“This was the only old home we’d looked at,” remembers the father of the family. “We knew immediately we wanted it. And we knew immediately that the kitchen had to be redone.”

Restored relief panel showing Homer with a lyre performing for a seated man with a musical instrument who has his arm around a half-reclined woman. All are dressed in classical Greece clothing. The panel is antiqued ivory colored plaster.

When we were called upon to furnish the living room, we thought something special might be hiding behind the sheetrock and marble.

If you have a listing that requires vision and creativity, invite us to help your client imagine the space differently.
