HISTORIC MT. WASHINGTON KITCHEN AND ADDITION

In this collaboration with Mark Mobley Architecture and Red Head Design, Greenleaf craftsmen
renovated this historic 1897 home in Mt. Washington to suit the needs of a growing family and create spaces where family and friends could come together.

 

  • The existing kitchen area underwent major structural renovations including the rebuilding of the old stone foundation and the addition of multiple beams and posts to support the floors above. The new kitchen includes custom wood cabinetry, historic reclaimed flooring, hexagonal tile backsplash, and concrete countertops.
  • A mudroom was added with a new side entrance, custom wood cubbies, and a durable tile floor.
  • The kitchen opens into a large gambrel roof addition built around a large brick wood-burning fireplace with custom wood storage below the bluestone hearth. Features of the addition include a cathedral ceiling, exposed wood ceiling beams, and a new heating and cooling system. Marvin windows and four skylights fill the space with light and custom-painted built-ins, and wide plank reclaimed floors add warmth to the family room.
  • A new dining room was added with custom bar cabinets, floating shelves, and a seating area for gathering with friends.
  • Terraced exterior landscaping and hardscaping with multiple areas for gathering are nestled inside new plantings and a curved stone seating wall.

Testimonials

The Greenleaf team are top-notch craftsmen who are highly attentive to quality and take the time and care to do things right. Beautiful work.

Smith – Terraces

Neighborhood: Mt. Washington

As an engineer, I truly appreciated Greenleaf’s attention to detail, their understanding of construction theory, and their willingness to take the time to do it right. And the dog? Well, I think he is still heartbroken over the absence of the crew that was willing to throw the Frisbee for him.

Earlbeck Residence

Neighborhood: Monkton

I cannot say enough good things about Greenleaf, George and Derrick. They were a complete pleasure to work with from start to finish. Extremely responsive, very honest and professional, and fantastic work. They kept to the schedule, and I really appreciated their input on several decisions – what was worth spending money on and where we could save costs. I was sad when the job was over that we wouldn’t get to see them anymore! I will absolutely use them for any future renovations, and strongly recommend them without reservation.

Williamson/Travieso Residence

Neighborhood: Mt. Washington

We recently completed a renovation of the back wing of our home with Greenleaf, and we are thrilled with the results. The renovation process is difficult under any circumstances, especially when you are living in the house, but Randy, our lead carpenter, took very good care of us and was extremely patient even when we were frustrated. Greenleaf does meticulous work, and our designer, Marci Lief, was terrifically creative, transforming some difficult spaces into gems.

Sheff Residence

Neighborhood: Roland Park

I found Greenleaf Construction to be a reliable, knowledgeable, and cost-conscious roof deck construction company. They knew the best materials and had the carpentry skills to do the job the right way.

The Nyweide Residence

Neighborhood: Bolton Hill

Greenleaf replaced our large, 2-story city deck with a very attractive, sturdy, composite deck. Every step was done professionally, from an initial thorough meeting with their team to plan the process with our lifestyle in mind and continued with excellent work habits of the carpenters and supervisors. The site was left neat and clean each day, and work commenced and was completed on schedule. I would recommend them for any home improvement project.

Martin Residence

Neighborhood: Federal Hill

Professional master bathroom renovation. Great job and fair price. Stayed within budget and no extras. I would recommend George Brown to anyone.

Berman Residence

Neighborhood: Lutherville

Very professional job – skilled craftsmen for all aspects of the job – good communication during the job on status and any issues that arose.

The Codd Residence

Neighborhood: Ruxton

We hired Greenleaf for a complete remodel of our home including kitchen, bathrooms, and removing walls to create an open architecture. George Brown and his team did an exceptional job, exceeding our expectations. Our project manager, Derrick, was professional, responsive, and a pleasure to work with. Casey, our lead carpenter, was meticulous, down to the last detail. We appreciated the integrity and skill demonstrated by the entire team. We also were impressed with the creativity they brought to the project and that they worked hard to keep the scope within our budget. Highly recommended!
