Our Ovaro Circle House

Located in Fair Oaks Ranch

Description of Ovaro Circle

You said you like Contemporary; well, this is it. The house originally built on this lot got hit by lightning & burned to the ground. After the debris was removed, the owners came to JMH and asked if we could help them design a contemporary home that would work on the existing foundation and replace the rustic home. We were able to create a stunning home utilizing the same foundation with some tweaks but a totally different architectural style.

The front elevation features store-front windows, allowing us to set the windows on the foundation for a massive display of glass. Right of the front door is a two-story glass wall in front of a floating steel staircase with floating treads and stainless-steel cable railings.

The Great Room features 20’ of built-in cabinetry for storage and display of original art and is anchored by a free-standing gas fireplace open on all sides. The chimney hood is suspended from the ceiling, and the exhaust vent is mounted on the roof to remove fireplace gases. The kitchen and great room cabinetry have full-overlay fronts and stained dark bronze, and there is even a massive refrigerator, freezer, and full-length dish cabinet. All downstairs flooring is stained, polished concrete.  Unique features abound in this house, from floating cabinets to glass countertops with under-lighting. The sheetrock is finished with a Level Five smooth texture. Instead of base molding, the sheetrock walls are held off the floor ¾” with a square sheetrock corner edge. Instead of the door casing, the sheetrock edge returns to the door jamb. The absence of base and casing provides a truly unique contemporary flavor. The entry ceiling is an eye-brow arch finished with glossy blue mosaic tiles. The clean ceilings are accented with intricate chandeliers.
