t’s a very consistent house,” says architect Ken Linsteadt about a Georgian-style beauty he and a dedicated team brought back to life for clients who had fallen in love with it at first sight. “It’s a little bit more tailored than a traditional house of its type might typically be. The furniture is not jumping out as modern, and it’s very calm.”

The transformation of the Atherton, California, home — which originally featured yellow shingles, poor geometry and a rather neglected garden — can be attributed to Linsteadt’s architectural prowess, designer Marie Turner Carson’s sensitive handling of the furnishings and the tasteful fixed finish selection of designers Carol Knorpp and Kerry Bogardus.

“We took the narrative of the clients, who liked cleaner, more contemporary things,” says Carson. “They wanted to feel like they were in this stately home, but with fresh and current interiors.”

Home builder Ed Faubel’s paneling work helped bring the interior setting together, and landscape designer Janell Denler Hobart expanded the original gardens while adding to their natural beauty. The project is pulled together by a long, windowed breezeway, one of Linsteadt’s favorite parts of the new house.
