Ponton Residence – Lake Blue Ridge

Brett and Suzanne Ponton purchased this lake front home out of foreclosure and transformed it from a Mediterranean Villa to Tuscan style home to fit in with the Blue Ridge environment. The home is 4 levels, connected with both a central grand staircase and elevator and covers 15,000 square feet.  The home was not finished on the interior, had no HVAC, plumbing fixtures, doors, trim, cabinets, handrails, lighting or any finishes.

Trimble Kelly Studios worked closely with the Ponton’s and architect Rick Larosa, AIA from the beginning coming up with Tuscan details and architectural modifications to suit the owner’s lifestyle and the design intent.  On the exterior, all the existing masonry decks were removed and large timber and “epay wood” decks and stairs were added.  Cindy Trimble detailed all the interior walls, ceilings, floors, cabinets, handrails and fireplaces.  She selected all the finishes, lighting fixtures, plumbing fixtures and hardware, doors, cabinet and door hardware.  She also selected all the exterior finishes and colors.  The level of detail was extensive.  For example, the entry foyer ceiling was an unfinished existing groin vault form that Trimble Kelly coated with gold and bronze metallic flakes, trimming the vault with bronze accents creating a grand entry statement.  Directly below this ceiling she designed a large (5 foot diameter) custom “Tuscan style” stone mosaic medallion that was inset into the stone tile flooring.

Trimble Kelly Studios work was completed at the end of construction.  The homeowner brought a lot of furnishings from their Dallas, TX home and purchased a few pieces through Trimble Kelly Studios (wine cellar, breakfast nook, keeping room.)  The final decoration, procurement of additional new furnishings, window treatments and accessories were not by Trimble Kelly Studios.
