After years of bachelorhood, this former Texan wanted to turn his home’s rugged interior into a fresh, relaxing, and up-to-date home for his new bride. The couple traveled extensively and wanted all the amenities of their favorite Mexican vacation retreat. They also wanted “funky, functional, and big” and great views to their large ranch.
A large 1,000 square feet addition to the original home provides a new family room and a master bedroom, complete with lounging area and his-and-her closets. The former master bedroom is now the new Master Bath, with a huge no-threshold shower with dual shower heads and an eyebrow window, funky curved shower and water closet walls, back-to-back vanities with floating mirrors for his/her separate counter space. It’s also ready for aging in place, a request from the owners.
The original dining room ceiling was re-framed so the entire new family room has cathedral ceilings. The hallway was repositioned to allow easy access from the new family room to the guest bedrooms and bath. A pocket door off the family room leads to the massive Master Bedroom.
The kitchen paneling was re-purposed as wainscoting in the new Smoking Room that was the former living room. The stunning results of this award winning project are fabulous Texan Rustic Retreat. The new space also boasts Andersen Windows, and Velux skylights & sun tunnels for brightness.
