An two story addition was added to the rear. The main floor would then become the prime living area with views of the pool. The original front door became the door door from the master bedroom onto the private veranda. The old got some gingerbread and privacy that previously did not exist.
The original front rooms got remade into the master bedroom and master bath. The wood ceiling was removed. The bedroom then had a vaulted ceiling which gave the room an expansive feel - so much so that the current owner employed a canopy bed to scale down the impact of the soaring space. The master bath is en-suite.
