Home Tour: Reimagined Hilltop Residence
Updated: Jan 3
Wedgewood Homes + Maverick Design came together to bring a 1960's home on one of Reno's most iconic streets back to its former glory! With incredible mountain and city views, this property had tremendous potential. With the steep, narrow driveway and tiered dirt lot, the exterior of this home featured several design challenges. Our goal was to make the hilltop home shine and celebrate its unique architectural features. Maverick designed a landscape plan to draw the eye up the sloped front yard, highlighting the long tiered pathway leading to the front door. A retro-inspired paint scheme was selected, accenting the front door in a bold color that contrasted the light exterior and panoramic windows.
Our undertaking also included reimagining the home's interior. While well maintained, the existing finishes were worn and in need of updates. The floorplan offered additional challenges, featuring a 25-foot long brick fireplace that divided the main living spaces, separating the kitchen and living areas. The team designed a plan to connect the two rooms and maximize the incredible views. We next turned our attention to a lackluster den that featured untapped potential. Utilizing the existing space, we added a secondary suite with an ensuite bathroom to add value for future buyers.
The interior finishes were updated using a soft finish palette highlighted by white oak floors and exposed wood beam ceilings. We selected key features to punctuate with contrasting materials, including the kitchen backsplash tile, metal fixtures, and accent flooring. This 1960's home was fully revived inside and out, striking an inviting balance of traditional warmth and modern style. Maverick Design + Wedgewood Homes are pleased to share the final result of this incredible transformation!
