Having overcome the sentimentality of growing up in the lot’s original home, the current home owner decided she and her own family would redevelop the property to the full advantage of the things she had grown to love; the views, the trees and the familiarity that only time can offer. This is the backdrop upon which this spectacular family home has been conceived. The home exudes a feeling of strength and timelessness. In response to the understandable quest for permanence, natural stone was selected as the primary exterior material. Many parts of the house have been softened by the curvilinear forms that evoke a sense of romance. The spectacular rear yard views have been exploited by all primary living spaces including the large garden room that features heavy bracketed overhangs and a soaring vaulted interior.
