On a Canal in Brugge

 

One of my moist unusual shoots recently. My client Jennifer called me because she liked what I did when I shot her home in 2018. It seems she did not like the images shot for her new home, and wanted to know if I would come and shoot her new home. I have shot many homes for previous clients out of town, and fly around the country a couple times a year to do that. But this home was just a bit different…. this home was on a canal in Brugge. So I flew to Europe and shot this incredible home in probably the longest distance commute I have ever made. This was a one-of-a-kind shoot, and a very incredible experience, and I am grateful I was trusted with the opportunity, and was skilled enough to pull it off.

Quaint Harvard / Yale

Where to begin… The beautiful restored woodwork and character of a 1910 home? Notice the dining room with a sweeping bay window with custom up/down blinds, the beautiful archways, the leaded glass windows (with custom storms), and the living room gas fireplace made to look like a coal fire. Attention to detail is everything. The amazingly seamless 2010 addition provided a main floor family room, the upstairs vaulted master suite with a private deck, a vaulted master bath with a 7’x5′ 2-head shower and double-sink vanity, a huge walk-in closet with 4 built-in dressers and a laundry-chute down to the main-floor laundry, and a full-width back porch and 3-year-old salt-water hot tub. The gorgeous kitchen remodel has 9′ lighted cabinets, a cabinet-front fridge with water and ice inside, a dual-fuel convection range with a pot-filler faucet, cabinet-front dishwasher, and stunning granite countertops. Downstairs is a beautifully finished media room that could be used as a 5th bedroom. The main floor bath sports a 2-sink vanity, a bright solar tube skylight, and a big shower with 2 heads. The remarkable 2-car garage has a 9′ door bay, a workbench, and tons of built in storage. Lovely water-wise landscaping with a private flagstone patio, plum tree, grape and hops vines, and raised-bed veggie garden with a drip system. The big full-width porches (front and back) have the perfect porch swing, a gas line for the included grill, and built-in speakers for the home’s 5-zone Sonos sound system. Don’t miss the 6.6 kW pre-November 2017 $21,000 solar panel system with a 25-year warranty giving you about $1,200 in savings per year (net cost of electricity usage for 2017? $54, thank you very much) and 40-year architectural shingle roof on both the house and garage! Thoughtful details abound – the skylights and the French doors to the decks have built-in blinds, two high-efficiency remote controlled gas fireplaces, cozy sub-floor radiant heat in the master bath, the included sun-shade for the master deck, custom blinds and window shades, rain-water collection barrels, freeze-proof water spigots with 6′ deep supply lines for the back deck and veggie garden for year-round use, the wifi controlled thermostat and hot tub, surround sound speakers, exitable basement window, lots of storage space downstairs and in the garage, the natural gas tankless water heater, additional insulation between the floors and in the garage, and the master bedroom fireplace mantle made with 200-year-old wood. Genuinely a must see.
