Fall House

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The home sits 12 feet from the cliff and cantilevers outward. Engineers had to make sure erosion didn’t send the house into the ocean, so they anchored the house with piers drilled deep into the cliff’s bedrock. The homeowners wanted the best view to be from their main bedroom, which is the only space that faces directly west, toward the ocean. The living spaces face northwest, providing views of both the rugged terrain and the vast ocean. There’s actually a strategic advantage to this arrangement, Fougeron says. A setting western sun causes all sorts of glare issues off the water, which causes many seaside homeowners to shut all their blinds and never fully enjoy the scenery.

“I had this idea of having the house cascade down the hill to take advantage of the view as much as possible,” she says. “Sometimes modern homes look like they’ve landed on the site out of nowhere. We wanted to make the home indistinguishable from the site, totally embedded and following the contours.”
