2nd Floor Addition
On the right side of the house, a four car garage was added to replace the existing two car garage. Adding the garage space opened up the flexibility for re-configuration of the rooms behind it creating a new mudroom entry way complete with a built-in cubby and bench, laundry room, pantry, a ‘Tuscan’ feel bathroom and a beautiful custom built mahogany wood paneled office. The mahogany office conveniently faces the pool area with sliding French Doors for easy access and a garden view.
Above the garage addition; an elegant, long hallway is accessed through the custom trimmed master bedroom opening revealing a sitting area enhanced with a crystal chandelier and a spectacular master bathroom featuring an ornately trimmed whirlpool tub area with a view, his and hers vanities, natural stone tile throughout and a raised ceiling highlighted by custom trim and a sparkling crystal chandelier. Continuing past the master bathroom in the new hallway a custom built makeup table with a marble top, a three way floor to ceiling mirror, a craft room and custom designed his and hers walk-in closets give the clients plenty of great new space.
Extending the living space on the outside rear of the house off of the family room French door entry way was a priority for this client to enhance seasonal outdoor entertaining options. In place of the open wood deck, a new covered patio was added that boosts a natural stone floor, bold mouldings, ceiling fan, plenty of seating and a built-in BBQ.
In keeping with the natural beauty of the backyard landscape the original wood flooring and white railings have been replaced with a new masonry structure that has a low walled surround and BBQ in earth tone color natural stone capped with bluestone and the covered patio flooring is random patterned bluestone.
The client enjoys millwork detail; hence the bold mouldings created in the field highlight the interior perimeter of the patio ceiling. The use of bead board on the ceiling and shakes both inside and outside of the patio peak add more dimension and texture. Perimeter lighting set in the soffits adds another dimension to the entire patio when lit at night.
