This 4,400-sf residence, designed for a near-empty nester couple, is perched on the ridge of a 1.4-acre site. The French Country style home is clad in a rubble-style stone with a bag joint mortar, stucco, and heavy timber accent details. Tapered walls give the look of the house growing out of the site. Swooping rooflines are ornamented with copper finials and copper gutters with rain chains in areas.

The topography resulted in careful placement to maximize access to the site, as well as views to the surrounding landscapes. The design is focused around axial vistas with strong visual anchors, whether highlighting a view through the house to the exterior or a view to an architectural focal point. The interiors are finished in a rustic modern style.
