The clear pool water reflects the gorgeous architecture of this Puerto Vallarta home that combines the interior and exterior elements to create a tropical paradise experience. Curtained archways lead to balcony and patio space perfect for soaking in the scenery.
The residence of over 11,000 square feet welcomes you with stunning ocean views seen from throughout the home. In this living room, walls of glass, a stone fireplace and the richness of handpicked mahogany create a cozy, almost rustic setting.
In the kitchen, steel and glass upper cabinets disappear into an interior window, which allows as much light as possible into the kitchen and provide a spot to display art and dishes. Custom hardware adorns the lower cabinets and showcase a logo created just for the homeowners. Quarter-inch strips of glass were fused together to create the floating upper island top and are supported by steel hidden within the cabinets.
The kitchen appliances disappear into this custom art wall, which adds vibrant color and energy to the non-traditional kitchen. The wall is clad in reclaimed barn wood, and artist Rob Stenberg painted the design on the panels. Touch-latch cabinetry keeps the wall looking more like an art installation than kitchen cabinetry. A custom hemlock block island looks time worn and was fabricated by the homeowner.
Warm woods used on the floor, ceiling and for the French doors brings a warm, inviting vibe into this southwestern dining room. Neutral upholstered chairs surround the rustic dining table, while a chandelier adds a touch of glam.
Low-water landscaping combines with sleek paver walkways and copper walls to create a rustic yet welcoming outdoor space. Stacked stone and stucco walls mix with terracotta roof tiles for a quintessential southwestern home.
