Montclair Mid Century Modern

5 Bedroom
5,144 SQ FT / living area

When our clients found this rare single-story mid-century home on nearly one acre in the sought-after neighborhood of Montclair, they jumped on the opportunity. Like many homes of this vintage, it had gone through a remodel in the 1990s that was different from their taste. The nearly 5,000-square-foot home had chopped-up interior spaces and an unfinished basement. RR Chandler and GSB Design had done a complete renovation in their previous home in Portland Heights.

The clients reached out, and what transpired was a total renovation of every inch of this once-classic mid-century modern home.

With too many cool features to list, here are a few: The incredible primary bathroom features a gorgeous walnut vanity with clean quartz countertops. A perfect free-standing tub and a curbless shower give this bathroom a spa-like feel. The modern kitchen features flat-panel doors and drawer fronts in an ideal mixture of charcoal paint and walnut. A massive 14-foot island with quartz and walnut countertops anchors this incredible kitchen. There is an 8-foot accordion-style window that opens to the outdoor space for entertainment. The kitchen overlooks a large, inviting, great room with a fireplace featuring a gas burner and unique cannonball media.

Flanking the kitchen to the west is the formal living/dining room combo, which features a 7-foot linear-style gas fireplace with full floor-to-ceiling black marble surround and flanking walnut built-ins. Last but not least, there is a 14-foot pocket door system that opens to a newly covered patio space, a pool, and a built-in spa.

This outstanding renovation didn’t stop on the interior. GSB teamed with Charles Rosenfeld from Rosenfeld Associates to execute an extraordinary exterior. A new covered patio with exposed beams and custom metal columns is equipped with four large infrared heaters, creating nearly 600 more square feet of “living space.” Adding to this is a large inground pool, spa, two outdoor fireplaces, and a Bocce Ball court that sit perfectly within the well-manicured grounds. In the front of the home, the once nondescript front entry was enlarged with a matching entry cover and an 8-foot modern door.
