On a very narrow pie-shaped hillside property, the entrance to this warm and inviting home was designed to envelope you through the graceful ascent into the house, welcomed by a cedar pergola and lush planters. Upon entering the house, a journey of surprise, visitors are welcomed into a spacious, brightly lit interior that opens into an expansive patio, courtyard, and backyard.


 The house features earthy hues of creamy stucco, natural cedar, and rustic stone combine to create a visually striking composition., while incorporating modern elements such as floor-to-ceiling glass panels that provide an abundance of natural light and a seamless connection to the outdoors.

The living spaces of the house embrace an open-concept layout, allowing for a seamless flow between rooms and fostering a sense of spaciousness. Large windows and sliding glass doors provide stunning views of the surrounding landscape and flood the rooms with natural light.

Outdoor living spaces are essential. A spacious patio provides the perfect setting for outdoor dining, entertaining guests, or simply enjoying the beauty of the surroundings.

The unique design offers a captivating blend of rustic siimplicity and contemporary sophistication, embracing the clean lines, openness, and functionality of modern design while utilizing natural materials and traditional  details to create a feeling of warmth and comfort.
