The reading retreat is exactly that, a space for the homeowners and their guests to have a quiet space where they can take a moment, relax, and read a book. Stepping inside, there’s a sun room area with a comfortable chair and ottoman, glass walls and a skylight.

A collapsible ladder provides access to a loft bed. The loft bed also has plenty of natural light from a secondary skylight.

Underneath the loft bed is an additional seating area with a built-in day bed next to a large window. The decorative wallpapered ceiling hides speakers designed to be hidden behind drywall, that are mounted in the ceiling, under the loft.

Between the floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, there’s a door that leads to a bathroom.

In the bathroom, white geometric tiles with black grout cover the walls, while a black framed glass screen partitions the shower off from the rest of the bathroom. There’s also an additional shower outside for an easy rinse heading in or out of the hot tub.
