The curving driveway climbing up through the trees opens up to the architectural details of this modern contemporary house: maple red trim on railings and doors contrasting with green ferns and foliage, and blocks of distinctive windows gracing everything from the garage doors to the curved arc of the living room and master bedroom walls.
An angled doorway opens into a living room that soars upwards to the kitchen, dining area, and master suite, and up another half level to additional entertaining and living space. Inside, the concrete hearth and mantle frames a clean but cozy gas fireplace, with the stamped cement entryway yielding to a carpeted space framed by floor-to-ceiling banks of windows along a gently curving wall. A door on this level lets in more light and greenery, and leads to the deck, railing, and stairs that surround the house. Skylights, recessed lighting, and block windows near ceiling height add both light and proportion.
Up a half level, an open kitchen and dining space continues the banks of windows and access to the decks. An artistic concrete floor in cool earth and ocean tones plays off the cement of a counter/bar to the kitchen and its custom maple cabinets. The kitchen features modern stainless-steel appliances, including a chef-grade 5-burner gas stove, ample storage and display space, and a clever desk nook tucked behind a partial wall.
On the same level is a spectacular master bedroom, with the same curved wall and bank of windows as the living room. A glassed-in, dual sided fireplace on a Slate tiled base forms the divider between the master bedroom and bath, discreetly shielding a Jacuzzi tub within the same Slate with its own cut-glass window bank and views of the trees. Custom cabinets, concrete counters, dual artistic copper vessel sinks, an open tiled shower with more cut-glass details, a skylight, and delicate track lights add more designer touches to the space. The other end of the master bath opens to ample storage and closets.
Up another half level is a carpeted family room with a sliding glass door that opens to the deck carved into the hillside behind the house. The deck continues the house’s theme of connected levels, with stairs and railings meeting in a corner hot tub area and circumventing a graceful tree that shades an eating and entertaining area. A bathroom with designer stainless vessel sink and fixtures, an enclosed shower, and tiled floor, shares space with the laundry room and maple cabinets. The bathroom overlooks the deck and trees. There is a utility landing with a built in ironing board and a French door opening to the side yard.
Two more bedrooms and third tiled bathroom are on the upper level, connected by a gallery walkway and railing that looks down on the open living and dining areas. The designer wall of windows offers light and view of the mountains. At the lowest level there is a guest bath with a stainless vessel sink, and a doorway that leads to the garage.
From the front door there is a stairway that leads down a half level to the guest bath with a stainless vessel sink. Across the landing is the entrance to the two car garage.
Trees and its hillside perch keep this multi-level contemporary home private, while its many architectural touches keep it sleek and modern, bathing it in natural light from every angle. Cozy yet elegant for a couple or a crowd, this is a stunning house that works on every one of its many levels.
