Kaplan Residence was inspired by Neoclassical residential architecture with white stucco walls and black framed openings adding a contemporary touch. The windows are recessed in double setback framed niches versus traditional projected ornamentation. Fypon trim offers the only added accent on the clean design. The symmetrical façade and landscaping forces the eye of the entrant directly to the foyer. Upon entry, a custom oversized double-sided see-through fireplace with slab Neolith Calacatta surround provides a backdrop to the chandelier welcoming guests.
24x48 Neolith Calacatta flooring is dominant in the first floor with accent patterns and finishes in the dining room, foyer and powder room.
Pocketed shades provide privacy out front while keeping the interior unobstructed and free from clutter when not in use. The back loggia and pool are accessed from a 22 foot long by 10 foot high glass partition from the living room. The request of an outdoor sport area and private covered deck for their children and friends was accomplished on the side yard. The film and music enthusiast husband also wanted a masterful professional theater with seating for 10 and was engineered to the highest standards by JV-acoustics in Germany with Mirador, Sound Lab Designs, SLR consulting and High Performance Home Companies.
