This home was a typical California Ranch home that was transformed in a cost effective manner into an outstanding “great room” home that fits the needs of today’s modern family. The renovator blew out the wall between the tiny kitchen and living room, creating a beautiful gathering space with a gorgeous exhibition kitchen, social island, and entertainment area. In doing this, the designer connected the kitchen to the outdoor entertaining area in the yard as well. An intelligent use of dazzling materials such as glass tile coupled with smart but cost effective tiles makes for a terrific treatment of the bathrooms. Square footage was added for larger master bedroom suite, and indoor laundry. A consistent use of finishes, color, fixtures, and lighting all combine to make this home a winner. This home is a great template for updating and adding appropriate square footage to a once dated home. Homes like this fly off the market.
