Located near the top of a canyon near the coast, this house offers exceptional privacy and ocean views for a family of four.
From the street, the driveway takes a steep 25-foot drop to arrive at the garage and motor court. The entrance is a layered experience of leaving car and city behind, slipping behind a wall and arriving at a garden with ocean glimpses.
The ground floor is designed with a piano room, guest quarters, and a great room that opens to a deck and pool garden. Stacked perpendicularly above is a horizontal bedroom volume, the master suite jutting out over the pool deck to reach for the ocean views. The second level also includes two children’s rooms and a family room.
Textured materials include glazed white bricks on the first level and grey cedar siding on top, both with large expanses of glass oriented to the water and landscape.
