In the catbird seat

A remodeled home puts the focus on the view and the animals outdoors

Although it is actually porcelain tile, the bathroom floor resembles rustic planks of reclaimed wood complete with nail holes and worn-in stains.

The kitchen’s arabesque tile coordinates with similar tile that is original to the front entryway.

Three walls of windows in the new sitting room addition allow for a panoramic view of the activity in the back yard.

Anchored by a stone fireplace, an expansive pergola serves as a gathering spot in all but the coldest of months.

The 144-square-foot addition was placed where it would have an unobstructed view of the lot’s wildlife.

Especially long, the quartz-covered island houses the bulk of the kitchen’s storage so that the back wall of windows can focus on the view.

Automatic window shades move completely out of the way to invite the outside in to the master bedroom.

Expansive windows grant this homeowner gorgeous views of the outdoors from the privacy of her bedroom.
