This Monmouth County, New Jersey project started with tearing down the detached garage and then adding approximately 2,400 square feet including a two-car garage with a game room above, a master bedroom suite, powder room, laundry room, and mud room. The existing kitchen was completely remodeled. The exterior received a new dimensional roof. The exterior siding was redone with vinyl and stone. New steps and a portico were added to the front entryway. A second floor terrace was built that overlooks the backyard and connects the entries to the master bedroom and game room. The game room has a spiral staircase down to the mudroom.
The goal was to add additional space and completely update the home. We wanted to create a unique, elegant luxury home both inside and outside.
