A Magical Renovation in Salt Lake City, Utah

Well, here we are bright and early on a sunny Monday morning! Lots to do today, so I will give you a brief synopsis of today's enchanting house and let you check out the rest of this amazing renovation of a Tudor home.

Tudor homes are notoriously dark, so these homeowners called upon Tankersley and McAlpine Architects to update their home, and to lighten and brighten it.

It's a very big house, so I am only featuring the three areas that I loved the most........all are beautiful, but I would have to say, these three spaces are outstanding, one of a kind interiors and it's clear Tankersley and McAlpine went above and beyond with this project. Having clients who are willing and able to take the re-design to the architect's creative echelon must be a dream scenario for all.

And how many little girls ever get to have a 'playhouse' at all, not to mention one inspired from a tower straight from the Disney archives.  Simply stunning!

Adding a conservatory along the back of the house certainly brought the light in with 15' ceilings and walls of windows.  This would be the new kitchen, family room and casual dining area.

The red French Lacanche stove is stunning set amidst the custom painted Rutt cabinetry.

Notice the stone fireplace on the wall opposite the kitchen matches the Artistic Stone range hood.

The view towards the kitchen.
How perfect is this room?

Then, there's the attic space.

Who could overlook this beautiful, spacious room?  A perfect place to retreat from the rest of the world to relax and re-energize.  A light-filled oasis.

The piece de resistance, though, has to be the Rapunzel Tower.  

The homeowners wanted a very special playhouse for their young daughter whose favorite fairytale is Rapunzel. With the playhouse on the ground floor and guest rooms on the second and third floors, it is simply amazing.........unique in every way.

You have to see how the architects came up with this memorable beauty, so click here.  It is any little girl's (or big girl's!) dream!!

Have a fabulous day!
