This stunning example of thoughtful architecture rests within a special environment, quiet & private, with distant views. The design is tasteful, & exacting in its execution, considering not just the view sight lines, but also unexpected details within. An open-air atrium is the focal point of entry, with entertaining & living rooms on one side, & sleeping rooms on the other. Both sides have floor-to-ceiling windows & doors opening onto Ipe decks, affirming the connection to nature. The kitchen is perfect for the chef, whether by profession or passion, with mis en place, baking, & cooking stations, and ample cabinets & shelving for storage. All appliances & cabinets were placed for active kitchen use, but also to allow for unobstructed views outdoors. The guest house is tucked into the hillside away from the main house and has a curved wall of windows, living green roof, full kitchen & bath. Multiple decks, a heated pool, & walking trails complete this escape from modern life.
