Architect: Gregory Cavanagh

ABOUT THIS HOME

Architect Gregory Cavanagh built this home for his family in 1960. The house was originally a Gold Medallion Home (all electric) which was considered to be energy efficient at the time of construction.  Blueprints and photos from 1960 will be on display showing the home before it was reimagined by interior designer Joshua Rice, who capitalized on light and space for an extensive renovation. Apertures and clerestory windows shower the home with warm natural light, without sacrificing privacy.

MEET & GREETS

6151 Llano Avenue

Built 1933-1995
Recently Renovated:  2019
3,380 sq feet (main house)
4 bedroom, 2.5 bath
Architect: FAR  +  DANG
Builder: Nick Thurmond

Sponsored by Ed Murchison, Realtor

ABOUT THIS HOME

The original house was pieced together by various owners between 1933 to 1995. At first, the home was set in the back of the lot, making an addition to the front of the property an excellent option. Not only did the addition transform the elevation to the front of the house, it also created an amazing indoor/outdoor living space. This home features a large courtyard with deck and indoor/outdoor 108-inch home theater with a motorized bug screen. Work was designed and completed by Nick and Taylor Thurmond, with help from the FAR + DANG Architectural team.

MEET & GREETS

Architect Bang Dang will be at the home Saturday from 2 – 4 pm to discuss the recent renovation.
