2016 Home Tour Preview II - Siesta
When you walk into this ranch style home at 2115 Siesta Drive you have the feeling that you have walked back in time to 1956 when it was built. It was lovingly maintained over the years by the Cannefax family who raised 4 children in this home. The home features scalloped wood trim on the many doorways, closets and built-ins, all of which are in mint condition with the original wood finish. The Cannefax kids will tell you there are creatures in the woodwork! See if you can find them! The vintage bathrooms are in keeping with the era with tasteful colors and beautiful tile work that is still in pristine condition.
The new owners began their stewardship of the property in 2002. They discovered original hardwoods under old carpeting in the bedrooms that they removed and then restored the hardwoods. They also made slight updates to the kitchen to open it up so it becomes part of a greater space with the comfortable den. Both the kitchen and den feature the original wood paneling and cabinetry. The den opens into a bright sunroom that leads visitors to a tree-top deck graced by the arching branches of an ancient pecan tree. You can view the lushly landscaped yard and a koi pond from the sunroom and the deck.
