Joe Kernen, co-host of CNBC's "Squawk Box," and his wife, Penelope, hired a "dream home" team of professionals to renovate their century-old New Jersey home, Architectural Digest reports.

The classic Tudor in Short Hills, N.J., was Penelope Kernen's childhood home, the publication said. She bought it from her aging mother after it had been in the family for 45 years and decided it needed a refresh, according to AD. With the help of architects, builders and interior designers, the couple redid the space using everything from the house that they could, it said.

"The leaded windows were all redone, and I found four pairs of original French doors in a closet in the basement and was able to use them in the wet bar gallery," Penelope said. "We even used all the original brass doorknobs and hinges."
