11 Bonita

Outwardly, this house stands gracefully in line with the quirky yet elegant Spanish Dames of Bonita Drive. Inwardly, the house is a reflection of its eclectic owners: one, an avid collector of all things beautiful; the other, a closet modernist. This blend of context and personality defies any one style; it simply aspires to be timeless and elegant. As a result, the house proper continues in a traditional style while the master suite addition introduces a warm, modern glass box situated in the private rear garden court. The old house was a dated reflection of the compartmentalized living necessary for climate control, complete with long hallways and a remote servant kitchen . We set about to increase the usefulness of the house by gutting and rearranging the spaces to support a more modern way of living. The hearth of the house features a period living room overlooked by the new elevated kitchen. A 16 foot copper skylight fills the kitchen with warm morning light. The daily entrance from the motor court brings you into a glass china room visible from both street and garden court. Below that is a cozy viewing room and wine cellar. The master suite provides a more clean, restrained feel. Perimeter drapes close to transform the glass bedroom into a sleeping chamber, and the glass wall of the master bath opens to the side yard "steel garden". An inviting front porch looks out over a simple, terraced yarg. Finally, a corner greeting bench gives a little something back to the neighborhood pedestrians.
