A wood slat wall with a retractable screen offers privacy when needed but also allows for views of the yard when retracted. The indoor living room flows seamlessly into the living space on the porch via sliding glass doors.
The grand living room (over 1500 square feet!) provides panoramic skyline views via over 65 feet of floor-to-ceiling windows and contains two sitting areas, a free-floating fireplace, bar and drop-down movie screen.
The great room completely opens up to an adjacent deck; a phantom screen drops down to keep out bugs without blocking the view. Looking into the home shows off the beautifully-planned—and perfectly aligned—series of arches.
Neutral carpeting grounds this comfortable home theater, helping along with upholstered panels to soften the volume of the theater. Black recliners are the perfect spot to relax and watch a movie on the pull-down screen.
When the owners need some relief from the afternoon sun, they can head over to this covered sitting area. With built-in lighting, a flat screen TV and sun shades that drop down from the sides, this spot is the perfect place to unwind.
The kitchen in this Oregon vineyard estate home turns into a public tasting room on weekends. To allow for privacy when desired, and openness when needed, a drop-down screen was installed to use during "wine tasting" hours to partition off the kitchen. When the homeowners want a more open flow, the screen retracts into the ceiling, a great idea for any home with an open kitchen that is sometimes better left unseen.
The new living room in the Sarlo home is bright and spacious. It is located down the hall from the kitchen and next to the wine bar. With a new built in flat screen tv, and new sound system and new modern furniture, this room is perfect for late night movies or parties. As seen on HGTV's "Cousins on Call".
The poolhouse offers luxuriously comfy features, including a high-end kitchen with a martini sink. Storm shutter doors tucked inside the arches drop down with a push of a button. The pool house was built only 2.5’ from the waters edge creating an unusual situation with a venial pool. To make sure the pool wall was properly supported, a newly constructed block wall supports that edge. The three main arches facing the pool hide screens and shutters to block the sun or wind.
The poolhouse features a sunken design, which gives a different perspective of the landscape, as well as heightened connectivity between activities.The poolhouse has all the comforts of home: an outdoor TV, wood burning fireplace, bathroom/changing room, storage room, full fridge and a high-end kitchen with a martini sink. Storm shutters drop down with a push of a button to provide protection on a stormy night or keep the sun out in the late afternoon. The three main arches facing the pool have screens as well to block the sun and reduce wind.
