Kistler Vineyards Trenton Roadhouse

A warm and inviting, upscale environment for reservations-only wine tasting. This three-level Victorian farmhouse was built in 1920 and had multiple modifications over time. The retrofit required, fire sprinklers and a catering kitchen, meaning extensive renovations: We took everything down to the wall framing. In addition, we removed heavy timber trusses on the second floor and installed a steel/wood hybrid ridge beam, all with the roof in place.

Existing Douglas fir flooring upstairs and the new oak flooring on the main floor were ebonized, giving the wood a rich, black finish. The lower level was renovated for staff offices, wine storage and laundry. Extensive landscaping improvements included installation of 4,700 square feet of limestone pavers, a chef’s garden, dining arbor and a contemporary fire feature on the patio.
