Renee’s home is an early sixties ranch. Quite nice for it’s era, but it is time. A major re design of the public spaces, particularly the kitchen, is the focus of this phase. Make the public areas larger, more open, more connected. Enhance the great view. Add a family room. Make the kitchen bigger, actually efficient and in lovely French Country style. And, if possible find a way to have a real front door. Now you go around the back of the house past the master bedroom.
