Our clients bought a ranch style home built in the late 1990’s and wanted to remodel the whole main floor. The most important thing they wanted to change was the “closed off” feel of separate spaces that made the home feel somewhat dark and closed in. They wanted to open things up to create free-flowing spaces with a contemporary update that would allow plenty of natural light to flood the home and open the family room and kitchen spaces up to the patio outside. This would significantly enlarge their seasonal living space and allow them to take advantage of their golf course views.
A large part of the rear of the home was removed to construct a covered patio and add a NanaWall sliding glass wall system - perfect for a picture frame effect of the outdoor patio and golf course. Upon entering the home from the front door, you now see beyond the family room and patio all the way out to the golf course. The patio boasts a large stone fireplace and electric infrared heaters so the whole family can enjoy the outdoor area even during the chilly early spring and late fall seasons. The kitchen was totally gutted and new bright, white shaker panel cabinets were installed. Subway tile and floating shelves alongside the oven hood compliment the clean, bright look. Currently in high demand, an induction cooktop was selected for this kitchen. Thermador-Bosch appliances are featured and include a drawer microwave system and wine refrigerator. Some glass cabinet doors were selected to further boost the kitchen’s appeal and beauty by showcasing favorite pieces and lightening the visual load of wood and metal. As a personal and meaningful touch, it was important to the owner to incorporate his great-great grandfather’s antique butcher block table into the design and function of the remodeled kitchen.
The family room features a contemporary fireplace with TV above. The mantel is made of concrete. New floors were added to the already existing oak floors and stained dark. The outdoor patio flooring was previously concrete and it was removed for the installation of stone pavers which lend and old-world look and feel. Motorized retractable screens appear at the touch of a button and disappear when not needed. Perfect for indoor and outdoor living spaces, these custom made screens provide fresh air, shade from the sun, climate control, protection from insects and a bit of privacy.
Our clients are extremely happy with their home remodel and agree that life on the golf course is right on par with what they desired.
