Barton Creek Residence contemporary-kitchen

Barton Creek Residence

Given a challenging lot configuration and topography, along with privacy issues, we had to get creative in designing this home. The home is divided into four basic living zones: private owner’s suite, informal living area, kids area upstairs, and a flexible guest entertaining area. The entry is unique in that it takes you directly through to the outdoor living area, and also provides separation of the owners’ private suite from the rest of the home. There are no formal living or dining areas; instead the breakfast and family rooms were enlarged to entertain more comfortably in an informal manner. One great feature of the detached casita is that it has a lower activity area, which helps the house connect to the property below. This contemporary haven in Barton Creek is a beautiful example of a chic and elegant design that creates a very practical and informal space for living.

Granite Grannies
It looks like a Shivakashi Granite or an Astoria Granite.

7. Double up on dishwashers. Ample dishwasher space means you can tuck dirty dishes in as you go (or, if you're like me, try to remember to do it). In a pinch you can also keep a cooler full of hot, sudsy water near the sink when you're cooking a major meal.

Just the right appliances. Note: 2 dishwashers, large SubZero and extra wine fridge. Placement of ovens is good. The only thing I don't see is the built in Espresso Machine. Also like the placement of the dining area. I love everything about this except the colour of the kitchen cabinets. I would prefer WHITE.
