The recently renovated Thrash House, 367 Los Gatos Blvd., built in 1902 by Peter Rasmussen, has won accolades in the categories of “best custom home,” “best kitchen design” and “best renovated or restored single house” at the 49th annual Gold Nugget awards.
The beautiful mansion, also known as the Rasmussen House, was recognized as a work of art during the Pacific Coast Builders’ Conference in San Francisco June 27-28.
The Gold Nugget awards are the industry’s oldest and most prestigious design awards in the nation, open to builders, developers, architects and land planners with projects in the country and world, according to a press release issued by builder Robson Properties.
The awards also recognize those who improve communities through exceptional concepts in design, planning and development, according to the release.
The team honored for the special awards included builder and developer Robson Properties, Inc., architect Sal Caruso of Salvatore Caruso Design Corporation, and interior designer Marie Peterson of Chelsea Court Designs in Los Gatos.
Los Gatos considers the 5,425-square-foot Thrash House a historic treasure, according to the property's marketing brochure.
It's reminiscent of the time when mansions lined Los Gatos Boulevard into town. It also serves as an example of early 20th-century neoclassical architecture and is listed in the town's historic resources inventory, the brochure said.
The Gold Nugget judges panel issued glowing comments about the home: “Thrash House is a lovingly—nay, obsessively!--restored old home that the entire jury was smitten by. Painstaking attention includes… molding, and window detail restored to their former glory, underscoring the sustainable mindset that was evident throughout this mindful remodel. Thrash House’s updated bathrooms and kitchen are deluxe and comfortable, and its light, bright interior spaces give a fresh look at what a grand old restored craftsman can be. Thrash House is remodeling done right, doffing a cap to tradition with a respectful and discerning eye.”
The home is on the market for $4.7 million by Don Knight, with . Details: 408-313-2191 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
