Sonoma / Sea Ranch Redux

Looking toward the entry with the original carport to the left.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

BEFORE: The home was built in 1966. During that time architecture firm Moore, Lyndon, Turnbull and Whitaker (MLTW) was developing an enclave along the Sonoma coast that would reflect the San Francisco Bay Area's traditional architecture as well as create a new modern vocabulary of style. The firm basically used this project as a prototype for other Sea Ranch homes near the coast. This inland design, however, had modified features — such as multiple porches — not found near the foggy, windy sea.In the late 1960s, the vertical-grain, old-growth redwood exterior had been painted gray to cover up the weathered wood, much to the dismay of Willers. “It was kind of the worst situation,” he says. “They had a naturally aged building, and they painted it the color that it basically was, only they removed the character to the house and destroyed the opportunity to refurbish the wood.”
