Staying on course

A contemporary home with a necessary boundary between public and private

The warm brown palette used in this kitchen is neutral with lots of expression in the veining of the quartzite countertops.

As owner of an appliance store, Kevin knows the ins and outs of the kitchen appliances, but Cheryl is actually the cook in the family.

It took about six months for the homeowners and architect to nail down the design of this contemporary beauty and then about a year for their vision to be built.

These double and single garage doors have the look of rich hardwood but are strong aluminum.

On this upper deck, the homeowner is ready to spend time with friends and watch the game on an oversized outdoor TV.

This property was previously owned by the country club and was the site of the tennis courts, so most of the land was level when construction began.

Brooke and Samantha enjoy some after school downtime at one of the many seating areas on this upper deck.

Perfect for entertaining, the kitchen flows to the eating area, on to a screened porch, then out to an open air deck. “Regardless of the time of day, there seems to always be a breeze,” the owner says.

A handy beverage station is grouped together on the outside wall of this kitchen, and includes an icemaker (unseen in this photo), a small fridge and a coffee station, plus plenty of storage for glasses.

Cable railings add a contemporary touch to this deck without obstructing the view of the surrounding golf course.

An outdoor stairwell leads from the upper deck—a popular gathering space for the whole family—to the ground level.
