Located in Silverleaf’s Horseshoe Canyon, this 7,700 square foot Ranch Hacienda serves as a vehicle for outdoor space. The owners’ desire for “classically traditional” with a lighter, brighter, and airier flavor than the neighborhood’s popular heavier, saturated exterior compositions was expressed in exterior materials and detailing that is simple in nature. The Nate Berkus-designed interiors complete the material and color palette with warm restraint.

The home, designed for a family with an extreme focus on outdoor living and sports, includes a basement equipped with a home gym, batting cage, and steam room. Outdoor amenities include a pool, sport court, and putting green. Additional features of the home include a motor court with dual garages and separate guest quarters.

His & Hers: Multi-Use Spaces

The clients, receptive to C.P.’s exploration of multi-use spaces reflecting modern life, gained a laundry room which functions more as a home command station for a highly engaged mother than a place for chores. The multi-use room includes a washer and dryer, wrapping station, project area, winter storage, and her office. Additionally, it’s connected to the outdoors, features a beautiful view, and is bathed in abundant natural light.

For him, there’s a fully built-in home office space combined with a media den, wet bar, and a short-stay guest room. By exploring multi-use spaces, a family gains additional purpose for areas without the cost of additional square footage.
