FALMOUTH – Bathroom renovations are one of the most rewarding (in every sense) of the improvements a homeowner can undertake. This splendidly updated contemporary includes two baths seemingly designed to pamper every sense.

In fact, not long after the 2007 renovations, both the master bath and the second/guest bath were featured in Better Homes & Gardens Remodel magazine, which praised and admired the work of designers Cricket King and Chris Coyle.

The second/guest bath, placed to serve both second and third bedrooms, is a stunner with a touch of visual drama enhanced by subdued lighting.

The ceramic tile floor is accented by a rectangle of glass mosaic, a cool, classical allusion. Apart from privacy windows at each end, the same glass mosaic covers the eight-foot, double-ended shower enclosure, which has a rain shower head.

A glass wall screens the commode. A lovely vessel sink rests on an onyx vanity top, with gracefully curving wood beneath. Towel bars and other hardware are brushed chrome.

The master bath of almost 200 square feet provides every amenity, including television, surround sound, and a double-ended walk-in closet with a wealth of handsome cherry built-ins. The twin floating bloodwood vanities have rectangular vessel sinks, reflecting the shape of the freestanding soaking tub, whch is surrounded by river rock that also forms the base of the oversized, glass shower enclosure. The natural-stone tile of the flooring extends up to also become wainscoting. The commode is behind a door in its own little room.

With contemporary sophistication a hallmark of the Falmouth home, it is only fitting that its address should be 4 Manhattan Way.

The property is listed for sale at $845,000.
