Kelly Residence

Grass Valley, CA

The modest ranch house for a large horse ranch needed a make-over and more space. The original wrap around porch hid the entry, making accessing the house a mystery. We enclosed part of the existing porch providing a targeted front door and gracious entry experience. Adding a Family room over an existing lower and separate garage, provided a space for guests and entertaining. Opening up and expanding the formal kitchen, dining and living rooms into one great room created a lighter brighter space for daily living family gatherings. A raised deck with a new carport below, enlarged the outside dining and views. From the deck, one looks out over the 60-acre wooded horse ranch property, and to the Sierra Nevada Mountains beyond. This ranch now has a headquarters house that the owners are now proud of, and comfortable in.
