Written & Photographed By Larry J. Mickartz Morgan Hill home in 2009 and occupied it two years later. The design of the house tapped into many things they had seen in their travels, a few unique ideas, and plenty of thought. They roughed out the basic design of just about every room in the home and presented it to their architect, Michael Davis. The architect was then able to incorporate their thoughts into the final plans. The home has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a full basement complete with an amazing wine cellar. The main living area has four areas around the comfortable open living room: the kitchen, the dining room, the piano room and a bar/billiard room. A large welcoming fireplace separates the billiard bar area from the piano room. One of the unique features is that each room has different ceiling treatments. The living room has large open trusses , while the dining room has a vaulted fir plank design similar to one that Ginny saw in Hawaii. The kitchen has elegant illuminated stained glass. The woodwork throughout the home varies: Cherry and mahogany for the cabinets, GILROY • MORGAN HILL • SAN MARTIN APRIL/MAY 2018 55
