However, the balustrading echoes the original design, but is slightly higher. Above right and facing page: White marble features extensively in the greatly enlarged master bathroom. To provide heritage detailing, the design team specified custom mosaic patterns for the flooring and shower walls. 56 meet the current building code. Not surprisingly, the kitchen retains a traditional flavor, with white painted cabinets teamed with cherry wood. Wherever possible appliances are integrated to retain an uncluttered look. There is also a butler’s pantry at the rear. For the owners, one of the key improvements was on the second floor. “We were able to construct more renovations at a wonderful master suite with a very large bathroom and two walk-in closets,” says Lindsay. “There is also a porch where we can have a morning coffee overlooking the rear garden.” Pritchett says the original house had a much smaller Jack and Jill bathroom – it was shared with a second bedroom. The space taken by both these rooms was given over to the new bathroom. “It is modernized, but we have kept the traditional character, with lots of white marble used in a heritage style. The floor has inlaid marble mosaics, and the shower walls also feature intricate mosaics.” The design team and the owners say the overall success of the rebuild is reflected in the fact that, for the most part, it is impossible to tell the new from the old.
