This magnificent estate was designed for a family in LA (Calabasas) that wanted an elegant home design! They searched in many places to find just the right team to create their opulent home and decided on Fratantoni Design. At first, they were hesitant to hire our firm because of the distance between Fratantoni Designs office and their home state. This was quickly put to rest as they learned our firm designs home plans all around the world. Our Firm’s employees travel from state to state to make sure their families and builders are well taken care of throughout the build process and not just in the design phase. This is known as the Fratantoni experience!
A dual Staircase was a must with a grand ceiling above to match! Another unique detail they wanted was the inside of the home to be a classy and yet hip feel throughout. With grand arches that were trimmed with stone and a pool room that was sophisticated and sexy. We had many discussions about the details and style of home the family wanted and if there was anything unsaid then our firm picked up even more details from our extensive questionnaire they filled out in the beginning. This opened the doors for them to really capture and think about everything they wanted and didn’t want in their new home plans. One of the many beautiful details about this home is the sophistically detailed stone carvings and surrounds on the exterior of the home. Along with all the different window shapes and sizes to give this estate a grand look.
Fratantoni Design has a process for a family’s plans like no other. We meticulously detail a family’s needs through our lengthy questionnaire and then get to work creating a plan. Our firm knows really listening and understanding how a family lives in a home is the key to creating a plan they feel comfortable living in. We are steady with time and scheduling as to not hold up the build process however we will not sacrifice quality for time when designing plans. After plans are permitted, we stay close to the builder of choice to make sure our family’s dream home becomes a reality. Traveling and doing inspections as a family’s home is being built is part of what we do, and we look at this part of our job as consultants to the family to make sure they have someone on their side to talk to their builder.
