A turret-like open cabana provides a warm, dry seating area with a view of the luxurious pool and hot tub at this Colleyville, Texas, retreat. The home's outdoor entertainment spaces include two fireplaces, along with lush landscaping and multiple conversation areas.
The two-tiered marble island in this Italian kitchen has baskets for vegetables and spices, a sink and plenty of room for food prep.

The wall dividing the living and dining rooms is opened up with a wide archway for a more open feel. The distinctive patterned ceiling tiles were retained but new recessed lighting and fixtures were added.
