Boasting stunning ocean views, but with an uninspired 80’s design, this home was updated with a new contemporary feel from the exterior through to the interior. The dated stucco was replaced with stone and cedar siding, while the entire structure of the home was salvaged, rejuvenating new life to the space without a full demo. With an original design that saw disconnected, closed in rooms, the layout was adjusted to accommodate an open and truly functional floor plan. Greatest consideration was given towards maximizing the home’s ocean views, allowing for a view from nearly every room.
An oak feature wall creates a grand entrance to the house and sets the tone for the cohesive design continued throughout. The interior’s clean, contemporary lines are balanced through the use of natural materials including a textured daltile wall in the main floor powder room, warm white oak floors, and limestone wall tiles behind the kitchen’s range. To feature the custom stained millwork in the living room and kitchen, cabinetry hardware was kept minimal. To further maintain clean lines, features such as a hidden lift up TV, a hidden door in the kitchen to an adjacent office and integrated appliances offer a sleek yet functional aesthetic. A porcelain tiled fireplace in the living room gives contrasting texture to the room while keeping within the monochromatic scheme that spills over from the kitchen.
