This showcase home specially targeted a demographic looking for innovative design, quality execution, and the seamless indoor/outdoor lifestyle of Southern California in a sought-after, single-story plan. Before entering the main home, a casita with a separate outdoor entry creates a place for a home-based business or private dwelling space for a relative.

A two-story, covered entry leads to a coffered foyer with a 14-foot ceiling and an immediate view through the two-story great room to the rear yard and vistas beyond. Smart space planning combines large luxury spaces with intimate, richly detailed private areas. Repeating rotunda spaces, all with coffered ceilings, organized in a T-shape, signal a space change in this open plan. Varying ceiling heights—the minimum is 11 feet—also help define distinct spaces.

To the right is the master suite, which enjoys a private outdoor retreat separate from the rest of the outdoor living area. To the left and adjacent the great room is the kitchen, with an oversized, dual-level island and separate eating area. Secondary bedrooms enjoy an adjacent large bonus space.
