Tile contractor: Patricelli Tile
Architect: Paul Whitney
Owner: Private resident
General contractor: Cabinets Etc., Palm Desert, California
This all-brick, 3,200-square-foot basement rambler built in 1951 was stripped to the original framing, reconfigured and renovated/reconstructed.
The entire home has hydronic heat under all floors and hydronic heat in the walls behind the showers and tubs.
Stone material for the fireplace was fabricated specifically for this project. All walls and floors are mud-floated tile and stone. The Calcutta stone for the master bath was hand-selected then cut in Italy. The kitchen counter was a challenge as all of the countertops were over 12 feet long and slabs are normally 10 feet or less.
