Being an engineer, Mr. Elliot set out to design and build a showstopping midcentury atop a secluded setting. This property at 4944 Hood Drive is just that—a harmonious marriage of classic materials and modern sustainability.

The residence comes with a tankless water heater, a 220V EV charger, a three-zone HVAC, and a variable low-speed pool pump, among other features."
