Merit Award: Historically Sensitive Renovation Over $300,000
For the renovation of this 1924 villa, David Heide Design Studio redesigned the upper and lower condominiums based on the owners' preferences. A formal, traditional style with period touches reigns on the lower level. Here, the living room flows into the curved, window-lined dining area.

The judges liked how this newly renovated, open hallway on the ground floor ends in the pool-terrace portico.
The family room on the first floor opens into the breakfast room addition as well as the butler's pantry by the kitchen.
Attention to detail enhances the first-floor kitchen. According to the architects, the room has a circular motif with a round table topped with the same natural iceberg quartzite as the perimeter countertops, and "other period touches include the art-glass doors and ceiling stencil."
Two first-floor bedrooms and baths were combined to form a large, luxurious master suite. Rojo Alicante marble distinguishes the shower, bath, and vanity top.
The beautifully renovated foyer and stairway to the second floor feature the existing railing as well as windows restored with art glass panels by Monarch Studios.
Aspects of the villa's facade include Ludowici (ludowici.com) clay tile, Haddonstone for the exterior cast stone, terra cotta medallions by Saint Paul Fabricating (stpaulfab.com), and Marvin Ultimate windows (marvin.com).
