This home was originally built in 1961 following a classic modern design tradition. It was purchased by me in 2013 and required a complete renovation of both its interior and its exterior. The floor plan was very workable, the rooms were all well proportioned, and the site had beautiful views but all were hidden. Removing all of the older finishes and the inappropriate design elements that were added by previous owners, my goal was to bring the home back to its more modern intent and to satisfy my functional needs. The bookshelves, fireplace and the wall of glass became the focus of the living and dining areas. The palette of colors and materials inside and outside are consistent with each other making the home very harmonious throughout and blending into its natural setting.
