“When I first met with the homeowner, she told me she wanted to remodel her home, which was about 11,000 square feet,” says Erica Lea Hendrix, owner and lead designer of Erica Lea Design Studios. “I didn’t realize we were going to be gutting it first, then remodeling and adding on. We essentially rebuilt the entire house."
Originally constructed in the mid 1990s, the old floor plan didn’t meet the specifications of the homeowners, and although another couple had renovated the home prior to the current owners taking possession, the updates were now in need of updating. But the location, with its breathtaking panoramic views, was idyllic, and the homeowners knew Hendrix and the right team could transform the property into exactly what they envisioned. With three grown children living in three different states, one spouse working out of state and an aging father-in-law they planned to make a permanent resident, the place needed to be comfortable enough for daily living and traveling guests, yet still exude contemporary, high-end design.
