From the moment you turn on to the drive this home will pull you in, and comparing the finished project to the original quality home will only serve to reinforce the ingenuity, intelligence, and skill involved in this work of art.
A comfortable six thousand square foot home as initially built, many new living spaces were carefully designed and created to provide greater balance and continuity. An additional garage was added as a base for the large guestroom with complete in-suite bathroom. Off the guestroom is an exercise room as well as an office leading to a patio large enough for entertaining. Below, the kitchen was transformed to over four hundred square feet of custom created beauty. The newly expanded kitchen then offers a gorgeous view of the new lanai through a sixteen-foot-wide nano glass wall.
As it stood, the landscaping was, for the most part, natural. A beautifully landscaped pool and spa (complete with its own turtle) were added to the back of the home. The lanai offers a serene bathroom to refresh after an energizing swim and an outdoor barbeque now exists to whip up some cross-cut ribs on a cool evening.
Circling back to the front of the home, many impressive additions will catch your attention. From the drive it is impossible to miss the striking new cold rolled steel, stucco and finished siding façade leading to the stunning new Porte Cochere. The entrance to the home is an impressive custom engineered six-foot wide, one-third, two-third pivot steel door with steel gratings sandwiched between glass panels.
As you enter the home, you will be ensnared by the custom plaster art wall that nearly floats to separate the entry from the newly remodeled living spaces. To the left of the entry, a stunningly simple powder bath has been created off the comfortable sitting room with a beautiful view of the valley. Far to the right is a cold rolled steel fireplace, framed by high gloss lux panels. Passing back through the dining area, the modern light fixture will bring to mind the many other artistic details included in the home by both the skillful architect and in collaboration with the homeowners. As you near the impressive kitchen, pass the gentle steps lined by a large rock water feature leading to the temperature controlled wine room, framed by the one-third offset stringer steel staircase with repurposed vertical grain fir treads. The kitchen itself is truly a focal point. The custom kitchen cabinetry mirrors the lux panels at the fireplace and cleverly conceals a mini bar as well as many other quality appliances.
Words do not do justice to this exquisite collaboration. Conveniently, the homeowners will be delighted to share their best in class home with you.
