"This architecturally significant home has been designated Landmark No. 270 by the SF Planning Commission. While keeping its architectural integrity intact, the redwood plank-clad home has been thoughtfully updated throughout and boasts an impressive floor plan with large floor-to-ceiling windows that flood the interior with natural light and provide breathtaking views of mature trees, hills, and the ocean.

The sustainability credentials of this pioneering design are exceptional, expressed in the blend of high-tech industrial and natural materials that run throughout. Formed of 100 homes arranged around pedestrianized streets, BedZED was built in 2002 and can be found in the leafy south London suburb of Hackbridge. A large communal meadow and planting troughs provide wonderful outdoor space for the whole estate."

This striking glass-and-steel structure has been meticulously renovated over the last four years to enhance the property's enduring appeal while honoring its history. Part of the Sarasota School of Architecture, Hampton designed 5614 Sweetbriar Circle to reflect the principles of that movement. The sprawling 3,640-square-foot home has an open-concept layout, clean lines, and extensive windows."
