Our client wanted to expand and upgrade their single-story ranch home in Sunset Cliffs to take advantage of their sweeping ocean views and create a more elegant, open home with a Tuscan feel. We doubled the footprint of the main level with a 1,790-sf second-story addition that included a master bedroom and bathroom with ocean-view deck, office, two bedroom suites, and a laundry room. On the main level, we removed the old bedrooms and bathrooms and designed an inviting great room, upgraded kitchen, dining area, and powder room. The old master bedroom space was converted into an entertainment and recreation area that opened to rear yard, pool and garage.
An interior grand staircase leads to the second story from the main floor; outdoors, a grand circular stair turret to the deck reflects the Tuscan design. We also incorporated thickened exterior walls to create deep-set windows, and exterior details influenced by brick and stone construction from early Renaissance architecture.
