Gorgeous & Green Master Bathroom

One thing can lead to another when a remodel is under way. The owners of this sunlit master bath in Westchester County, New York, were embarking on some changes to their Shingle-style home when architect Carol Kurth came up with a suggestion: Instead of the simple cosmetic update they'd planned for their leaky, 1980s-style bath, why not go a bit further?

"When we showed them the opportunities for storage and views that a small addition would open up, they decided to go for it," says Kurth. Her plan hinged on a modest bumpout—about 8 feet deep and 10½ feet wide—to allow for twin vanities and a vaulted, windowed bay for a freestanding tub, positioned to maximize Hudson River views. The original section now holds a shower, a dressing area with custom cabinets, and a private toilet room. On a platform in the new windowed bay, a Waterworks tub soaks up natural light and scenic vistas.
