Portola Valley, California
A partial remodel with new entry foyer and master suite additions provides substance and character to what was an unassuming 1950’s ranch-style home. The design focuses on the home’s extraordinary gardens and views beyond to the coastal hills. The master suite, once relegated to a second floor with limited outlook, was relocated to the main floor. The new bedroom and master bath are sited to take full advantage of both privacy and views. A hall between the kitchen and office was refashioned into an elegant wine storage area and bar. From here, the terrace and outdoor dining area is accessed through a new pair of delicate steel framed doors.
