This Spanish revival-style home is listed on the San Diego Historical Registry. The homeowners wanted to experience the conveniences of modern life while retaining the integrity of their home and its original charm.
This new-construction home is just as beautiful at night, with landscape lights showcasing its crisp white exterior and simple yet sophisticated style. A gravel path curves around the lush front lawn and shows visitors where to park their cars.
This new construction home takes luxury to a whole new level, with a 10,780-square-foot floor plan, six bedrooms, eight baths, an open kitchen, spacious garage and a private pool and spa area. The panoramic views aren't too shabby, either.
The modern exterior of this home uses the colors of nature to blend the structure into the landscape that surrounds it. The home uses the slope of the land to create a pleasant mixture of nature and construction.
The woven design of the umber-hued lounge chairs on this cozy deck resembles classic wicker furnishings. A grand live oak, saved during the home's construction, provides a shading canopy over this outdoor sitting area.
Outdoor living spaces and extra details such as ceiling fans are becoming even more important in home construction. This covered deck designed by Edward Andrews Homes in a new community in Roswell, a suburb of Atlanta, boasts a paneled ceiling with a ceiling fan, providing a breeze and illuminating the seating area.
This home is located in a highly desirable neighborhood, but did not offer the space that a growing family would require. Originally built in the 1940s and featuring solid construction, a complete home renovation made the most sense. The renovation includes an addition on the rear of the home, adds a complete second level with four bedrooms and two bathrooms, as well as opens up the main level to create a highly desirable open concept featuring an office, mudroom and gourmet kitchen.
As seen on Cousins on Call, John Colaneri and Anthony Carrino used an old mantel they found during the Rao home's construction for a headboard. They salvaged the piece, cleaned it up and painted it blue. Now, the piece is a dramatic statement piece that has become the focal point of the room.
