If you’ve read Home Bunch for awhile you have seen many homes designed by one of the most talented architects in California, Brandon Architects, Inc. It’s no secret that I admire this company for several years and I will continue to do so since they keep innovating while keeping a timeless appeal, and as you will see here, they don’t disappoint.
Located in Corona Del Mar, California, this newly-built East-coast-inspired Cape Cod house features interiors that embrace you the moment you step in, but I am sure that your heart starts beating a little faster even before that! The curb appeal, using plenty of natural stone such as Bluestone, surely takes your breath away.
The interiors are neutral, calm but with personality. There’s always something that will grab your attention, from the greywashed kitchen cabinets to the mix of traditional and more contemporary elements such as the many black steel folding patio doors, which make a huge statement with the open floor plan in this California Cape Cod home.
This is a great example of how to design a new home with warmth and elegance. Feel inspired.
A Bluestone path and stone walls add some interest and texture to the exterior of this Cape Cod home.
The front patio features a Bluestone tile and low-maintenance gardens. Notice the topiaries and the outdoor lanterns framing the space.
This traditional entry features a stunning arched front door. Outdoor lighting is from Circa Lighting.

Imagine being able to open the patio doors and allowing the summer breeze in…

Lots here are quite narrow and a smart design allows the spaces to feel open, connected and to appear larger.
