Contemporary Hillside Home

photos by

This 3200 square foot second home sits on 10 acres in the Santa Ynez Valley. I incorporated some forms and details from traditional English country cottages but with a contemporary interpretation. A metal roof, steel windows, and crisp detailing combined with the warmth of hardwood flooring and exterior stone makes the home sophisticated and comfortable. Several terraces and a screened porch expand the living areas into the adjacent gardens.

Oak & Broad
It looks like wide plank hickory. The contrasting heart & sapwood combined with the darker swirles gives me that impression.
