The exclusive Rossmoor neighborhood is home to many of our custom crafted designs. Being familiar with the homes in this neighborhood, we knew that we would be dealing with design issues that stemmed from their outdated architectural design features and layouts. During our first visit, we confirmed this. We also noted that the home’s past remodels lacked integration with the rest of the home. Therefore, our goals for this project were to provide a design that added the interior space that the client requested, addressed the outdated components, and created a cohesive design for the house.
To do this, we converted the existing living room into a more formal entry receiving area and then reoriented the home so that the family spaces, including a newly designed kitchen and family room, were moved to the rear of the house. This residence also now features a new laundry room, wider halls, and a bedroom suite designed to accommodate an aging parent. A cozy dining nook and bay window opens to the kitchen, which had previously been a covered patio. The family room has a tongue and groove paneled ceiling and built-in cabinets to create an inviting space.
We partnered with interior designer Heather Ball to select new fixtures and finishes throughout the home, and to redesign the fireplace and an existing restroom.
