Sonoma Mid-Century Gets A Makeover, $3MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Where: 831 Virginia Court, Sonoma
The Team: Mary & Michael Morrongiello are the developer/designers; staging and interior design by San Francisco’s HOME Stagers.
What: A simple but clever reinvention of what had been an unprepossessing Mid-Century home in California’s Wine Country, wrapped in a U-shape around a bleak courtyard, now a series of fresh, open entertaining spaces– behind a high fence.
Before, it was more parking lot than patio.
The kitchen is now open and spacious; as befits the location, there’s also a compact custom wine room. The breeze block screen is original to the house and leads to a family/media room.
The master bath is unexpectedly posh, and a seriously luxe retreat.
What We Love: The outdoor spaces have been reinvented as outdoor rooms.
