[evergreen / Today's Ranch House]
This was a fun project. At first glance, there was one thing about this house I loved- the location. But being tucked away on a quiet street in between Phoenix Country Club and Cheery Lynn was just about the only thing this house had going for it. Everything else had to change. The home felt constrained and dark, and desperately needed to be brought into the 21st century. So we removed every wall we could, tore out the ceilings, added skylights, and made the floorplan center around the kitchen of your dreams. I wanted it to maintain it's ranch style heritage but introducing a lot of unique modern touches. The house is entirely trimless with smooth, bright white walls. The chef's kitchen is anchored by a stunning dimensional tile hood vent, which floats over fumed Oak butcher block complete with a continuous waterfall feature. The dining and living spaces are divided by suspended Alligator Juniper live edge shelving. Bathrooms feature a lot of exciting tile work, a giant naturally-lit claw foot soaking tube, and a very custom live edge burled Maple vanity. The master has custom mirrored barn doors that were painted by local artist, Sarah Hurwitz... And the list goes on. Point being, this house was very fun to create. I hope you enjoy.
