The clients wanted a home for frequent gatherings with their large, extended family. They envisioned a rural Mediterranean style: a stone village exterior, but a transitional interior that would be both beautiful and comfortable. A separate living area with a library and office provides a quiet work atmosphere when the house is full of people.
Priority was capturing stunning mountain views from multiple living areas and creating a seamless entertaining transition between interior rooms and exterior patios and grounds. A second-floor deck created an additional gathering space with 360-degree views. Steel windows and doors blend exterior views with the open floor plan. A large pool, sport court, game room, and outdoor pizza oven add entertaining fun. A concealed window between the laundry room and pantry allows for the easy transfer of groceries and supplies being brought in from the garage.
Multiple authentic/reclaimed materials were utilized: a reclaimed brick barrel-vaulted kitchen ceiling, a reclaimed brick groin vault dining room ceiling, reclaimed exterior oak shutters and gates, Italian hand-carved limestone fireplaces, a rift-cut French white oak great room ceiling, and French white oak flooring throughout.
