This was a wonderful transformation of a mid-century modern home into a contemporary ranch. The bones of the original home were good, including abundant square footage and large floor-to-ceiling windows in the living and dining areas that made strong visual connections with the beautiful and sprawling backyard. The clients’ goals were to upgrade systems and modernize finishes in the home, originally built in 1955. The remodel opened up the kitchen to the dining and living rooms creating one larger space. The bedroom and closets were converted into a master bed/bath suite. New French white oak floors and plaster walls, custom-made windows and doors, and an open floor plan make the space light and airy with a feel of casual sophistication. The new master bedroom and bath provide space and privacy separate from the children’s wing. The remodeled kitchen, with its simplistic, clean lines and oversized, asymmetrical windows, exudes a contemporary feel.
