This handsome new master bathroom in a historic Craftsman house in Point Loma “complements but does not copy the original structure,” says Architect Ione R. Stiegler, who designed it. “It’s simple, but historically appropriate.”

Features include his and her flanking cabinets, built-in medicine cabinet, traditional hex-and-dot flooring, subway tile wainscot,
radiant towel warmer that’s tied into the home’s radiant heat system, and a hinged drop-down cabinet for additional countertop surface and access to electrical outlets.

The bath is part of a larger remodel, which included a new second-floor master suite with retreat, walk-in closet and ocean views.
