ARCIFORM remodeled this 1952 Ranch for a dynamic couple who love art and entertaining. One enters through a custom front door carved by Tom Cramer. The main level floorplan is predominantly original, with color, artwork and texture throughout. The roof structure was changed from a simple gabled roof to a single-pitch shed roof, creating a soaring overhang at the rear deck.
The daylight basement’s family room boasts a wall of large windows and a door, offering a view of the backyard. Its new basalt fireplace warms this gathering spot on chilly nights. The room is open to a new retro kitchenette/office/bar with perforated metal screens to keep the space tidy. Down the hall, a guest room with a patio and a colorful new guest bathroom sit near an updated workout studio.
On the main floor, the living room makes the most of the new roofline, new windows and doors that lead to the back deck. A turquoise, undulating wall is a textural background for the black gyro focus fireplace. Open to the dining area and kitchen, this is a wonderful space for socializing.
The back deck was enlarged for entertaining and provides a magnificent city view. There are deep roof overhangs from the new roofline, paneled in fir, providing shelter from weather and afternoon sun.
The master bath was created by expanding into a former bedroom. The shower spans the width of the room, clad in textural white tiles & sliced pebbles in sea glass colors. A custom double vanity by Versatile Wood Products graces the room in rich Mahogany, topped by a recycled content countertop. The street-facing window has a custom metal privacy screen by artist Alisa Looney that creates a lovely play of light.
Off the bath sits the new master closet and dressing room (once an office). An anteroom was added at the master bedroom, and both are paneled in mahogany with built-in bed and cabinetry by Versatile Wood Products. Walls are painted a soothing blue, and a cobalt blue Zircon gas fireplace by Malm rests near rear windows. Versatile created a custom geometric screen which adds ’60s flavor to the room.
