Originally built in 1950, the Butterfly House as it’s known, underwent extensive remodeling after damage from an El Nino storm. The remodel’s innovative design respectfully maintained the original structure’s integrity. The kitchen utilized custom cabinetry made of select African Sapele Mahogany. Ocean views are spectacular from the public rooms of the residence, and for this reason, dictated that no wall cabinets were used along the kitchen’s windows. The serpentine, concrete countertops are an exposed black aggregate with a high polish sheen. Concrete was specifically selected over the limitations of natural stone materials relative to the edge detail of the countertop’s curve.
