Horse and buggy era home in Clintonville

ADAM AND KRISTY VALENTE’S HOME,

located along the Overbrook Ravine in

Clintonville, is not only a stunning and

refreshing home, but it is also a place

where kids and adults alike find solace

surrounded by nature. The Valentes’ landscape

design is a blended swirl of the

contrast between the wild nature of the

ravine woodlands and a formalized, English

garden that includes vibrant roses.

2

Paying attention to the past

When planning their three-story addition to

the home, the Valentes did not go about erasing

any of the character or even the details of the

original house. “The history of the home was

significant to us,” says Kristy. “The previous

owner wanted us to write her a letter, essentially

promising that we would respect this home and

that we would cherish it hopefully as much as

she and her family did before us.”

The Valentes and Architect Christopher

Meyers together endeavored on an adventure

to discover both the history of the home as

well as the history of the English country

quotidian style. ➻

The Columbus Metropolitan Library staff assisted the Valentes

in discovering the origins of the home. They found that a doctor

built the house and named it Twin Oaks. The doctor specifically

referred to the residence as a country home, located in what was

then called Glenmary Park, a suburb of Columbus.

“The previous owner found prohibition bottles in the walls,”

says Kristy. “We also found a bell system that the original owner

installed in 1910. The owners would ring the bells, located in

outlets on the floors, and the bells would ring within the servant

quarters.”

“After we submitted our letter to the previous owner in hopes

that she would agree to sell the home to us, we were astonished

to receive a letter back from her,” says Kristy. “She wrote about

the wonderful memories she and her children had in the home

over the years. They would have annual Easter egg hunts in the

Ravine. We have continued that tradition.”

Mengel.

Entry points

The original entryway into the home is located on the back

facade of the house, facing the ravine. So, there are several

entrances into the home that the Valentes needed to consider

when planning their addition. “The original entrance was greeted

by a horse and buggy that essentially brought the family around

the property in procession,” says Kristy.

Part of the garage was an area for the horses’ stable. When the

Valentes started their renovation, they recreated a wood door

that precisely matched one of the original exterior doors, making

the two main entries match.

Artist Constance Mengel created artistically-painted floor patterns

inside each of the two main entrances, now arguably one

of the more ingenious additions to the renovation process. “This

type of floor painting would be typical in an English country

7

home,” says Kristy. “They would recreate a type of floor rug in

paint inside the entrances.” ➻

A touch of English character

In addition to renovating the first floor, the Valentes expanded their living

space with a three-story addition consisting of exercise space in the basement,

a kitchen, and a master bedroom/bathroom suite on the second floor.

“I was going for an English country character throughout the house,” says

Kristy. Exterior finishes include stucco that mimics the original concrete

walls, cedar shake roof tiles, and copper half-round gutters with matching

downspouts.

During the demolition and early construction phases, Kristy reclaimed as

much from the original house as was possible. “I would stand there and tell

the contractors, ‘save’ or ‘salvage, ” she says. Woodworkers refinished and

reinstalled many of the original doors, windows, and trim throughout the

home. “We had many meetings with our builders to work on exactly how to

copy some of the original trim in the house. We also had to design new types

of trim that would be both consistent with the original home as well as with

the English country home style,” says Kristy. The Valentes donated other

items to Columbus Architectural Salvage and Habitat for Humanity.

The kitchen is open with a breakfast nook in the corner, surrounded by

wraparound windows. Kristy and the custom cabinet designers chose a

unique trim for the raised panel doors. The large island in the middle of the

kitchen does not have a sink nor a cooktop so that it can function traditionally

as a large working surface. ➻

Trading spaces

The master bedroom has vaulted ceilings and

closets with doors that were saved from the

renovation work elsewhere in the home. “The

suits closet has the original dining room doors,

and the clothing closet has the track and barn

doors that came directly from the horse stables

portion of the original garage,” she continues.

“The bathroom was designed to be similar to

what you would find at a spa.” The bathroom

has a welcoming aura with a historic window

from the original home located high within one

of the exterior walls, and a dresser with sinks on

top as the vanity.

The Valente residence is one of those homes

that makes people search out and seek the old,

rather than the new. Adam, Kristy, Meyers, and

their builder Miller Troyer held the bar high for

this home. The Valentes are as blissfully happy

as the older, unique owners reportedly were

from past generations. As Kristy describes the

house, with a smile on her face, she mentions,

“I have lost track of how many different kinds

of birds we have seen around the property:

cardinals, blue jays, finches, hummingbirds,

and even red bearded woodpeckers! It is hard to

imagine we are in the middle of Columbus.”

The high window in the master bath was

Doors in the master suite were salvaged

from the earlier dining room and stable.

Grab the popcorn and catch a

movie in your own home theater

BY SYDNE SANTO

When you first decide to incorporate a theater

into your home, you’ll probably have some ideas

in mind of what it’ll be used for. Are you planning

to host watch parties with your friends for

major sporting events or have family movie night

every week? No matter what inspired your most

recent home renovation, we know the idea of

having a home theater represents more than just

convenience: it represents the newfound ability

to bring luxury into your home. When creating

your perfect home theater, it’s important to

consider all of the exciting technical and design

options available to you. ➻

housetrends.com 39


Comfort is key

Adding seating to your space

is one of the biggest differentiating

factors your home

theater will have. Are you

going solely for comfort and

enjoy the idea of traditional

theater chairs or are you

wanting to push the envelope

with bright chairs of

different shapes and sizes?

The great thing about home

theater seating is that you

really can’t go wrong.

1

2


3

First, it’s important to have

an idea of how many people

you plan on entertaining in your

home theater. If you have children

or a large family, it’s a good

idea to plan on adding a few

extra seats in the event that you

have extra guests.

Many people often overlook

the importance height plays

when choosing proper seating;

a person who is 5’1 will need

different accommodations than

a person who is 6’1. A safe bet

for all parties is to choose seating

that incorporates adjustable

headrests to allow maximum

head and back support. ➻

between the two rooms. Photo by Ross Van Pelt

5

Screen time

When it comes to placing the screen, it’s important to account for both the size of the space in

question and the distance between the viewers and the screen. In general, it’s safe to assume

that the size of the screen should be 1.5 – 3 times smaller than the distance between the seating

and the screen. For example, if the seating is placed 10 feet (120 inches) away, the screen

should be 120/1.5 or 120/3, or between 80 and 40 inches. Because this is such a wide range,

it’s almost always better to go bigger if you’re stuck between sizes. However, beware of the

overall size of your room, as you wouldn’t want to lose an entire wall to a screen alone.

To avoid uncomfortable viewing positions, it’s also smart to measure out where the eye will

naturally rest on the screen. If you’ve chosen to incorporate reclining chairs into your theater,

it’s important to remember that many, if not all, of your movies will be watched at an angle, so

hanging your screen at a slight angle will account for this change. ➻

Can you hear me now?

In order to enjoy all that movies have to

offer, you’ll want to include a sound system

as well. Thanks to modern technology,

many audio/video companies can provide

a central control system for all technological

functions, from volume to lights, in the

palm of your hand. At the very heart of

your sound system will be your home theater’s

receiver, which is used to power your

speakers.

As we’ve seen with the other aspects

involved in building a home theater, it’s

important to consider the space you’re

building in. If your space is doubling as

another room, finding speakers to fit on the

wall or on a shelf is a good way to save space

for foot traffic. On the other hand, if you’re

building a designated theater room, you

can’t go wrong with simple tower speakers.

Many homeowners also opt for surround

sound, and incorporate it either

with ceiling additions or by placing speakers

in various positions throughout the

room in order to recreate the true movie

theater experience. To emphasize the dramatic

effects that make movies as mesmerizing

as they are, you’ll also want

to include subwoofers. When choosing a

subwoofer for a large space, your best bet

is to choose a sub with a woofer at least

12-inches large, while compact subs work

well in smaller rooms. ➻

theater can greatly add to the aesthetic, as

Turn up the lights

Once you’ve finished building

your space, you can

begin searching for the

appropriate lighting. When

it comes to choosing lighting,

it’s important to find

something that’s dimmable

and remote controlled –

having to travel back and

forth between your seat and

the lights in the dark practically

defeats the purpose of

having lights at all! As we

previously explored, installing

an integrated home the-

13

ater control system allows

you to monitor all aspects

of your experience from

your chair.

While there are plenty of

different lighting options

available for home theaters,

it’s important to take into

account the type of lighting

your room already

provides. If your space is

home to windows, you first

should install proper blinds

to block out any ambient

light. If you’ve chosen to

include a front projection

screen, your room should

be as close to total darkness

as possible, while a rear projection

screen accounts for

dim lights within the room.

To play it safe, choosing

room lighting that operates

on a dimmer ensures that,

no matter how your screen

functions, your lights can

be easily accommodated

into your space.

meet

Leanne and Steve Ford are a sibling duo that has teamed

up to host the HGTV show Restored by the Fords. The

Pittsburgh-based pair breathes new life into homes that

are showing their age with a fantastic style that produces

amazing results.

QHow did you get a show on HGTV?

A Leanne: HGTV had been following our work for a while. A friend introduced us to

someone on their team and we connected. After a couple of years of back and forth

the time was right. Success always seems so sudden when you see it from the

outside, but it takes TIME.

Steve: Leanne.

Q Of the homes you’ve renovated, what is

their common element, if any?

A Leanne: They are all dated

and unique and in need of some

modernization. We respect the history of

these homes and we try our best to keep the unique

features that drew the client to buy the home in the first place. Just

because we are redoing and modernizing a home doesn’t mean we need to

lose all the quirk and character. That’s the fun stuff!

Steve: Basement toilets … otherwise known as the “Pittsburgh Potty.” Honestly, we try

to look for varying differences in these homes, but I think that Leanne and I are both a bit

drawn to mid-century modern.

Q You have a great camaraderie on camera … but you’re real-life siblings.

What is your relationship like off camera?

A Leanne: Ha! Our relationship is the exact same on and off camera. Sometimes we are

on the same page, sometimes we are in different books, in different libraries, on different

planets. We love and respect each other and we get along great … MOST of the time!

They captured us perfectly.

Steve: What you see really is what you get. Camera on or off, that’s us.

What began with a spark… emerges as an icon.

The difference is Gaggenau.

We have been perfecting one oven for 30 years. Our latest

rendition accentuates its distinctive design: the door is

now created from one imposing 90 cm wide sheet of 3 mm

high-grade stainless steel. It represents one vast entrance

to culinary potential.

This remodelled, hand-crafted work of art represents the

culmination of our fi nest principles, skills and ethos. We’ve

christened it the EB 333 in recognition of our 333 years of

working in metal. This has always been more than an oven;

it is a promise to create masterpieces.

Serendipity. It’s a word for a happy accident. But what do

you call a happy accident that is predicated ahead of time?

Perhaps it simply comes down to fate.

Fate played a tremendous role in the journey that brought

a couple to the luxurious home that commands a double lot

in Upper Arlington. For years, the wife said she felt it was

“supposed” to be her home, the one she would grow old in.

She kept her eye on it and even knew some of the previous

owners, but years passed and the home never went on the

market. “I finally called our realtor with the anticipation of

2

doing a renovation on our other house,” she explains. “He

mentioned he had a double lot about to come on the market,

and I just knew.”

Once the deal closed, the homeowner was not going

to leave anything to chance. She was well aware that the

home, built in 1930, needed a major overhaul, so she

took her time, honing and sketching her vision of what

the home could be, paying special attention to symmetry

and balance. She pulled in Charlie Griffey from Griffey

Remodeling to assist. ➻

A sensitive shift

The double lot, appealing because it provided the potential

to expand, came with its own unique set of challenges.

The driveway needed to shift sideways and all of

the main aspects of the home needed to flip to the opposite

side. Griffey’s company gutted and reconfigured the

entire property but, as he explains, “The homeowner and

I both wanted to be sensitive in terms of repurposing

and salvaging.” As examples, they removed a screened

porch flanked by prominent stone pillars, chipping away

stone by stone in order to reuse hundreds of the stone

pieces later. The homeowner also salvaged and restored

the charming diamond-grid window on the front of the

home.

Not only that, she replicated the window’s crisscross

pattern for the kitchen cabinetry, office and first floor

staircase. “I don’t like going into homes where you know

it’s an old house with a new addition. I wanted it all to go

together,” she explains.

Attention to detail was the name of the game, particularly

in terms of the exterior. An Indiana quarry is the

source for the spectacular stone on the front, lightening

what was originally a dark Tudor look. The stone walkway

leading to the front door is from a Canadian quarry,

and there is still a different variation of stone on the side

and back patio, but all of the colors and hues mesh. ➻

5 The kitchen was moved to the opposite

side of the home to allow for its expansion.

6 Just steps from the kitchen, this casual

dining area is flooded with daylight.

A brighter future

On the interior, sunlight and warmth filter through windows

into the formerly dark great room. The homeowners salvaged

the dramatic built-in but extended the space, creating a new,

arched doorway. They added a custom limestone fireplace,

with a design the homeowner had sketched on a slip of paper

and which was no easy feat since the 1,500+ pounds of limestone

required extra support in the floor. Meanwhile, a large

piece of steel rests inside one of the beams of the room’s coffered

ceiling, dictating both the depth of the ceiling and the

size of its panels. “It explains why the coffered ceiling is that

deep. This room could handle it, though, because of the tall

ceilings,” says Griffey.

The dining room has countless distinctive features, not the

least of which is the custom-made dentil molding that exemplifies

the epitome of craftsmanship, rounding each corner in

perfect symmetry. Each piece was installed individually, with

no visible fasteners. The room’s medallion-patterned carpet

gives it a royal feeling, and interior designer Joanie Johnson

found the Italian dining room table, Bernhardt chairs, and

the exquisite Currey chandelier.

Moving into the light and airy kitchen, which the homeowner

calls her favorite room, there are more custom details,

from the heft of the baseboard, so chosen to match the

strength of the paneling, to the wood grain of the flooring

that blends with the floors of the living room. She was able

to put her creative juices to work in here, scouring through

design photos until she found a hood she favored and could

use as the basis for the custom hood she had made. For his

part, Griffey suggested lowering the entire ceiling in order to

create the recessed, tin look. All of the tin squares are perfectly

symmetrical. “I think it’s awesome,” says the homeowner.

“It was pretty gutsy but I absolutely love it.”

The crown molding continues to the living room in order

to add a formal edge to the room and to maintain the home’s

clean lines. The blue hues of this room show up again in a

nearby space containing a wet bar and brick chimney. “The

brick exposure was a bonus,” explains Griffey. “We were able

to salvage bricks from the rear foundation, and you can’t even

tell it was patched.” ➻

8

7 Dentil molding adds to the elegance in the formal dining room. 8 An original brick chimney adds a rustic touch to a wet

bar off of the living room. 9 This side elevation shows the original garage which is now an exercise room with additional

storage space. 10 The home’s crisp lines are evident in the more formal living room.

Raising the bar

Both the homeowner and Griffey agree that the master bedroom

was the most challenging space to renovate due to the

steep pitches of the roof. But they were successful, raising the

room’s ceiling within the interior yet maintaining the original

visual lines on the exterior. The end result is a serene and gracious

retreat with lots of wall space for artwork.

Ultimately, says the homeowner, “The house needed love;

it didn’t have any. Also, I wanted to make a home my kids

would want to come back to.”

As serendipity—and fate—would have it, she did.

11 A second floor addition,

allowed for a new master

suite and separate his and

hers walk-in closets.

12 New stone on the front

façade gives the home a

softer, lighter look.

Renovation opens up Worthington home for entertaining

They met at college. After that they lived together for five

years. Now they are closer than ever and recently embarked

on a major home renovation together. They make their

moves and decisions as a unified team and have complete

trust in each other. O Sounds like we might be talking about

a married couple right? You would think, but in this instance

it’s a homeowner and her long-time interior designer best

friend: Kerry Gor and Emily Knoppe. O Kerry met Emily

while they both were undergrads at OSU. After graduation,

Emily has worked as both an interior designer and realtor;

Kerry as a small business owner and entrepreneur, most of

the time alongside her husband Krupal Gor. O Kerry met

Krupal at age 14 when her family moved to the Columbus

area from Lima and she took up residence in the home

behind his. “He would walk me to the bus stop,” she says.

Once they were in college the couple started dating. ➻

4 A well-stocked mini bar is within easy

reach of both the dining and family rooms.

5 Kerry says she uses the griddle feature

of her range every day. “I don’t have to

soap it down. I just wipe it right off.”

6 Brass handles exemplify the transitional,

streamlined look the designer was aiming

for. 7 The faucet at the island sink was

created by the manufacturer with

contemporary Scandinavian furniture

as its inspiration.

7

Fast forward

Several dates and a few years later,

the now married Kerry and Krupal are

parents to two young children and were

looking for a house where they could

raise their family. Their wish list was

fairly specific. The home needed to be

in a quiet, diverse community inside

the 270 freeway with a fairly good size

lot. Plus, it would be great to have a

pool and a cul-de-sac location.

Last summer, Emily put on her realtor

hat and found them the perfect

place. “It’s tough to find land inside

270,” says Krupal. “She found everything

we wanted.”

Plus the setting was idyllic. The

house sits on 1½ acres in an established

Worthington neighborhood with a back

yard that’s hard to beat. An inviting

oversized pool and nearby pergola are

positioned perfectly between the home

and a heavily wooded section complete

with a creek running through it.

5

Interior upgrade

While all the major boxes were checked,

there were a few adjustments that

needed to be made to the interior. “It

was not the open concept we wanted

inside,” says Krupal. Fortunately,

the family selling the home had the

30-year-old plans which indicated

which walls were load bearing. Once the

team at Riverstone Construction came

on board, their architect confirmed the

kitchen wall could be removed and the

floor plan could be changed up.

“We fell in love with the outside

space,” says Krupal. “Once we found

out we could make the inside what we

wanted, it was a no brainer.”

To make the main level of the home

more open, Emily, now in her interior

designer role, suggested tearing down

a wall that ran most of the length

between the kitchen and the family

room. To brace the new opening, a

20-foot support beam was put in place

and wrapped with repurposed wood. A

black iron strap covers up a seam in the

wood. Emily added a second one for

good measure.

“I wanted it to look as realistic as

possible,” she says. “A beam that large

would need support.”

An opening to the adjacent dining

room was also enlarged substantially.

A formal living room was closed off to

become a study and a former motherin-law

suite was reworked to become a

playroom for their 4-year-old daughter

Esa and 2-year-old son Leo.

“It was a complete first-floor gut,”

says Kerry. ➻

housetrends greater columbus 83


Plenty of elbow room

This is a couple who loves to entertain, so much of the renovation

was focused on the kitchen.

Emily worked with Marni Cercone, who was a kitchen

designer with Rite Rug, to remove walls and reconfigure the

floor plan to grow the kitchen space by about 50 percent.

A 12-foot long island that seats five comfortably stands at

the center of the space with three oversized weathered zinc

light fixtures adding a dramatic touch. Emily was confident

about the outcome thanks to her diligence during the planning

stage.

“I always lay everything out to scale,” she says. “I use blue

tape, blue tape, blue tape.” The designer marked out the

dimensions of the island on the floor and cut circles to mimic

the widest part of the light fixtures and laid them on top. She,

Kerry and Krupal were convinced that it was all going to work

out just fine. “We trusted our designer,” Kerry says.

“Little lights would have been too lost,” Emily adds.

Tie-breaker

On the very rare occasion when Emily and Kerry couldn’t

agree, they would call for Krupal to be the deciding factor.

“We wouldn’t tell him which of us liked what,” Kerry says.

“But inevitably he would side with Emily.”

Krupal says that when it came to major decisions he definitely

had a say so, but he acknowledges that most of the time

the choices where handled by Kerry and Emily.

One such occasion occurred when it came time to select

hardware for the space. Kerry, Krupal and Emily visited Linda

Manket owner of Premium Hardware. Krupal says Linda

served him a drink and directed him to the lounge area where

he happily relaxed while the women laid out their options.

Among many hardware decisions made that day, the

group selected matte black iron knobs for the interior doors

throughout the home, and brass hardware with a champagne

finish for the kitchen cabinets. “The long thin handles were

Kerry’s idea,” Emily says. “They kind of just go away while

standing out.”

She has

ruined me,”

Kerry says. “I can’t

make a decision

without her.

8 Cabinets were placed up to

the top of the 8-foot ceiling to

increase the appearance of height

in the room. 9 The soft gray glass

subway tile of the backsplash is

carried through to an accent wall

with floating shelves for display.

10 These rustic iron knobs were

placed on doors throughout the

home. 11 The former kitchen

island makes for a great work surface

in the craft room.

10

Crafty re-use

Not wanting to waste the original cabinets,

the couple decided to create a

craft room on the third floor in what

had been an attic. While Emily suggested

this room wait while the team

focused on the first floor renovation,

Kerry pushed to move forward. “It was

crazy to waste this space with all these

windows in it,” she says.

Several wall cabinets and the island

were repurposed for this area which

Kerry uses for play time, educational

opportunities and her own gift wrapping

and crafting projects. ➻ 11

housetrends greater columbus 85


Built for company

Recently the family celebrated Leo’s second birthday with several of his cousins,

aunts and uncles visiting from across the country.

“I always see us as having guests,” Kerry says. Emily agrees. “It’s one of the reasons

they bought this house. Kerry goes all out when entertaining. There’s always a

theme and she dresses full out. This is the house you want to be in.”

Ties that bind

While a major renovation such as this would often put a strain on the relationship

of those involved, that’s not so in this case. Emily reports that Kerry “was the easiest

person I could ever work for.” Kerry adds with a laugh that she has become even

more dependent on her friend’s design talents.

“She has ruined me,” Kerry says. “I can’t make a decision without her.”

12 The opening between the kitchen and the dining room more than doubled in size.

1890 Victorian Home receives makeover.

DESIGN-BUILD PROCESS A GREAT CHOICE FOR THIS PROJECT!

Design-build is a concept developed to benefit the remodeling homeowner by providing both

quality design and construction services within the same general contracting company. A

design-build contractor will be able to see your project through from start to finish, keeping

design, engineering and budget in mind. Some design-build firms have architects on staff,

others use certified designers. This whole house renovation by Collamore Built is a success

story of the design-build process.

NACO0818.026

SPECIAL ADVERTISEM


ADVANTAGES OF DESIGN-BUILD CONSTRUCTION

• Accountability is the sole responsibility of one

company. The design-build method fosters

teamwork and cooperation.

• Budget is controlled by one firm. Once the scope

of work has been finalized, the project costs are

clearly defined and controlled by the designbuild

firm.

• The communication benefits of working with a

design professional and a construction expert at

the same time ensures that potential problems

are discovered before the project starts.

• Design-build projects can be completed in a

shorter amount of time because: Bid time is

reduced, scheduling for the project can begin

before design is finalized, potential construction

problems are uncovered early and enhanced

communication keeps everything moving.

• By combining design and construction

experience with one team, the homeowner

realizes the benefits of “one-stop-shopping”

at its best.

A NOVEL IDEA

Shelving the boring bookcase ideas of yesterday

BY ALLY REUTHER

ONCE UPON A TIME,

there was a high-tech heyday where everybody decided to give

e-books a whirl. Not a particularly lengthy chapter, many people

reverted back to traditional books before long, preferring the

feel of pages turning under their fingertips to the single tap of an

arrow on a smudged screen. Today’s designers have recognized

this reversal in trends and have played out their dialogue to a T,

delighting bookworms everywhere by churning out a variety of

chic bookcases. It would be extremely “shelfish” of us not to share

these with you, but don’t worry, no spoilers here! Flip through the

next few pages to check out these beauties. ➻
