Our goal was to transform an older California “ranch” house into a stylish new family home. The home is perfectly located at the end of a cul-de-sac in Hillsborough with a view across a scenic ravine from the back yard. Aesthetically, we wanted to blend the client’s New York City background with California comfortable living.
The kitchen was dark and felt enclosed. We opened the space by eliminating the awkward peninsula and moving the location of the refrigerator and pantries. Adding an island improved storage and created a large prep area. The layout suited the client’s need for cooking, entertaining, and family time.
