This existing ranch-style home had a stone masonry octagon at the south end that contains the Kitchen, Dining and Living Room areas surrounding a large central fireplace hearth. The owners desired to maintain and enhance this unique feature while upgrading and modernizing the entire home with craftsman styling to replace the 1970’s ranch motif. The thermal envelope was improved with additional insulation, new windows, doors, siding and roofing systems. The bedroom wing is completely reconfigured to provide a larger Master Suite overlooking the creek that runs through the property. Guest rooms, a Home Office and Ham Radio Shop flank the Library Hall which connects the garage to main living areas.
