A Renovated Weekend Home in Tagaytay
There’s something so charming about the Yonzons’ home that you just want to stay there 24/7
The Yonzons’ Tagaytay brick rest house used to be just that—a weekend family home where the parents would retreat to with their five kids. But then a renovation in 2006 expanded this home so now, it’s also an office, a party place, and a venue for the huge Yonzon clan’s annual reunions.
Because the Yonzons are a sociable bunch, their weekend home is usually filled to capacity with friends and family; thus the need to extend the floor area. It now covers a bigger kitchen, a dining area with a longer dining table, a loft, an extra living area, and a powder room. The huge space is made charming by sampaguita glass, old railroad ties, a smattering of antiques, and art pieces.
