This family home sits on 2.5 acres adjacent to a sensitive water-shed area, providing a lush natural backdrop.
The living and private functions are organized and separated into two structures with careful attention given to views, the introduction of natural light and cross ventilation. The exterior material are stucco walls, mahogany windows and trim and metal roof. The stucco covers 12” concrete & foam Rastra Blocks, selected for their high thermal and acoustical performance. Wide expanses of wood and slate floors feature radiant heat throughout.
The home takes full advantage of its terraced site with a large family room and backyard pool. Full panel sliding glass doors open up the indoors out to a generous terrace fronting the pool. Tall privacy walls surrounding the terrace buffer neighboring traffic sounds, while creating a sculptural edge within this parklike setting.
