Gilroy Vacation Home

This formerly traditional and small ranch house was converted into a sleek, modern country getaway for a family of five. They didn’t want to spend a lot of money, but wanted a clean, contemporary space for their outdoor weekends with friends and family.

The kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms were gutted and refitted with minimalist fixtures from Ikea. The floors were converted to bare concrete and then finished to a nice shine – easy to clean with three children and their friends spending lots of time outdoors.

An existing open-beam truss roof in the garage was cleaned up and painted to show off the architectural lines, while the garage doors were replaced with glass doors to bring in more light. A washer/dryer unit is hidden behind doors.

Upstairs, the children’s loft houses beds and a playroom. All in all, a great place for a family to get away from it all in the beautiful countryside of South County.
