They say God is in the details. This home is a work of art. It is a purposeful statement, made by the homeowners, designers, and builder, that craftsmanship and attention to detail is not a lost art.
This home started as an 18th century plantation, situated on several acres with 10+ live oak trees. The home itself was inhabitable, so the home owners disassembled the plantation board by board, careful to save each usable board. The antique cypress was laid out in the yard, waiting to be given a new life. NMF Architecture then designed a beautiful, traditional southern estate, nestled in between the existing live oaks.
The beams were denailed, the flooring was planed down, and the one-hundred-year-old, hand scraped beadboard was sent to be cleaned. All of the exposed wood in the home in original to the home. The old stair balusters were used for the kitchen island legs. The original doors had the hardware restored and custom casing and jambs remade and installed. The hand scraped bead board was used to line the foyer walls, and as panels in the cabinetry. The old ship lap was used to line the island, fabricate the stair treads, create an accent wall, and skin a custom side door. The floor joist were used as floating shelves, and to create a one-of-a-kind custom dining room table.
The front entryway was custom made out of mahogany with hand cut, beveled, leaded glass inlays in the center pain and surrounding side lights. The Foyer is tiled with ceramic and brass tiling, and the beadboard clad walls lead you into a paneled archway. The kitchen cabinetry was built with twelve piece molding, paneled ends, and rounded corners. The Kitchen flooring is a custom herringbone pattern using the original floorboards. The ceilings were either coffered, arched, or wood slatted. The Dining room features custom wainscoting and picture trim, and the Master Hallway features antiqued mirrors with custom mullions and rosettes.
