Hillside Contemporary Home

This whole house remodel has given new life to this 2,277 sq. ft., contemporary home originally built in the 1960’s.  New Fleetwood doors and Kolbe windows, together with an expanded Ipe deck along the south and west sides of the house, showcase the home’s fabulous ocean views as never before. Moving the stairway to the downstairs family room from the center to the side of the living room opened up the living room and created space for an addition to expand the master bedroom and bath.  Since the home sits on a hillside, seven caissons were installed 15 feet deep to support the cantilevered master bath and expanded deck.  New contemporary finishes and fixtures were installed throughout.

The main challenges on this hillside contemporary remodel were addressing the extensive seismic and dry rot issues in the original house. Working on the steep hillside also presented its challenges.  The good news is, when the last nail is pounded and new paint applied, this house is not only stunning, but comfortable, seismically safe, and healthy.  Architect: Wade Davis Design.  The interior and material design choices were made by the owner.
