A Hillcountry Modern Retreat
This 1990’s home in the Dominion neighborhood of San Antonio was dated and dull when it was purchased by our contractor client. Located in a great area of town, and on a nice cul de sac lot, he knew that with a little renovating it could be everything he wanted in a home. Ceilings were raised, walls were moved and new sheet rock was made smooth for a contemporary look. Natural elements were selected such as the raked stone backsplash in the kitchen with the agate accent tiles. Warm wood floors and the different textures of the materials keep this space from having that cold, stark feeling that contemporary spaces can sometimes have.
The homeowner loves to entertain, so a pool was added with an outdoor kitchen, and a pass through window from the inside bar is perfect for those pool parties. The original master bath was small with a tiny shower. In the new design, the bathtub was placed inside the shower with the tub filler coming from the ceiling. A floating vanity was placed in front of the shower backing up to the steam shower bench which is the perfect place to relax while having a steam.
