This one-of-a-kind home is a stunning example of the primary goal of California Modernism --- to bring the outdoors inside. From sunrise to sunset, the vision changes capturing gentle golden rays of sunlight in the broad, floor to ceiling, windows. In the interconnecting rooms, luminous neutral palettes were chosen, some rendered with American Clay plaster, to harmonize with the outdoors regardless of whether the sky is bright or gray. The natural light is inspiring and that feeling is carried through with luxurious finishes.
This Contemporary is invitingly gracious and not one to follow the herd! Three fireside sitting areas, found in the formal living, formal dining and the master bedroom suite, encourage slowing down. Designed for avid cooks and entertainers, the unapologetically modern kitchen is clad in custom Poggenpohl cabinetry, quartz counters, Wolf, Sub-Zero, Miele stainless appliances, and Dornbracht fixtures. Yet, it is anything but cold! This dynamic space becomes the life of the party once food and friends are introduced.
The elegant Terrazzo floors add a luster rarely seen in homes and are virtually indestructible. The second floor has Quarter-Sawn hardwood floors with a custom stain that grounds the softer colors and dances with the golden rays of sunlight. There are his and hers custom Master Closets which are neither just a closet, but the promise of an organized life! With smart technology, the lighting, music, garage door, and temperature may be changed by the homeowner from anywhere in world, or just up the street, so not to enter a dark home.
An idyllic Retreat -- the Outdoor space is all about thoughtful details. In the summer heat, there’s a cooling water mist system, as well as mosquito misters. Landscape architect, David Hocker, designed the Lueders Limestone hardscapes, pool with water feature, and the landscaping, which is designed to add privacy as it matures. The rolling driveway gate is powered by a heavy-duty motor, and the glass garage door and glass gates were designed to carry through the custom esthetics. The pool equipment is tucked away where no one will hear it and it is protected from the elements for a long life. The standing-seam roof is both handsome and low maintenance.
Above the garage is a nicely finished apartment with wet bar, full bath and an extremely large closet. This space is perfect for guests, an exercise room, teen hang-out, or home business. It has central heat and air, music speakers and an abundance of windows for natural light.
