Best Single FamilyDetachedHome—3,000 to 3,499 sq. ft.
Judges Statement:
Inspired by English cobblestone mews lined with cottage homes, transformed a former car dealership into a single-family development, and
restored the property to its historic use. Located on a major thoroughfare at a busy intersection, the project could have lent itself to townhomes or stacked flats, but the
nostalgic character of Los Gatos inspired the design team to bring small-town living to the Silicon Valley with finely crafted single-family homes.
The 3,193 sq. ft. home exemplifies neighborhood living with its spacious brick porch looking onto a tree-lined street, brick driveway leading to a detached garage with
loft above, and rear patio opening to the brick driveway. The neighborhood’s welcoming feel flows into the house with the open kitchen and large island, sunny dining
nook and family room, and full basement (with bar, bath and media room). The home also boasts formal areas for entertainment, including a sun-filled enclosed front
porch with lowered ceiling. The second floor master bedroom has a reading corner and master bath featuring a furniture-like vanity and walk-in closet. Supplementing
the kids’ rooms, the laundry room has a craft corner, washing sink and generous cabinetry.
This home artfully interlaces traditional architecture with floorplans designed for a modern family.
