Design build company The Brown Studio, Inc together with real estate developer dasMOD, have recently completed the renovation of a 1960s ranch-style home in Carlsbad, California.
At the front of the house is an oversized mahogany pivoting front door and a one-of-a-kind steel framed custom hexagon window.
Stepping inside, the living room is large and open, with steel and glass partition walls and windows that open it to the deck.
A feature of the living room is the Palm Springs sourced turquoise stone fireplace, that has a structurally-sound and cantilevered ceramic bench and a decorative wood finish around the fireplace.
Creating a true indoor / outdoor living environment, there’s a wrap-around deck that leads to various seating areas, the swimming pool and the backyard.
At one end of the swimming pool there’s a hot tub and a fire pit, and stairs lead back up to an outdoor dining area just off the kitchen and guest suite.
In the kitchen, there’s a wood slat ceiling, and pantry doors sit flush within a full height hallway of wood cladding. A large island, with space for 6 people to sit at, ensures there’s always plenty of seating when entertaining.
Between the fireplace in the living room and the kitchen, is the dining room. 3 simple and colorful pendant lights hang above the modern wood dining table.
The master bedroom, located at the opposite end of the deck, has a sliding door and a master ensuite bathroom.
In the ensuite bathroom, there’s a standalone bathtub that takes advantage of the large floor-to-ceiling windows, and has a view of a lush garden.
Overall, the design team added approximately 1,100 square feet of living space to the house, which included 2 guest quarters, like the space below, that has tall windows and plenty of light.
