Meticulous house plans transform a crumbling structure into a Victorian row house with a modern feeling for the interior, all while preserving a little piece of history


In the name of historic preservation, this home’s original transom windows, decorative brackets and box gutter were preserved to keep the Victorian architecture intact.

Despite being located in a 130-year-old Victorian row house, this small kitchen design offers every modern convenience.

An iron sculpture, made of locally milled steel, hangs above the fireplace in this second-floor living area.



A faux brick wall with a pair of indoor water features and a stained glass window add visual interest to this space.

This homeowner’s memories of riding the 77/54 streetcar through Oakland are captured on this staircase mural.

This renovation included an open floor plan and added 1,800 square feet of living space. Here, a lower level sitting area, complete with fireplace, serves as a warm welcome for guests.



This bedroom design overlooks the second floor living room and indoor water features. Bright blue carpet competes with the view of the space below.

In a nod toward the owner's love of water features, a pair of outdoor water fountains accentuates the fenced-in yard behind this home.
