This 12,000 sf house is a modern estate with the warmth of wood, stone, and gardens. The house is designed to open up to the gardens as well as the views. The massing of the house creates different areas (private, public, service, etc.) and masks the overall size. Crisp white walls are offset by wood siding and stone terraces, as well as a pool. There are many decks and terraces on the second floor as well as the roof.
The entrance to the house is a transparent gap between two wings of the house. To the left is the formal living area on the ground floor and the master bedroom above. To the right are the master closets over a three car garage.
The ground floor plan includes a 3 car garage, living room, dining room, wine room, powder room, kitchen and pantry, family dining area, family living area, screening room, gym, billiard room/ library and maid’s room. On the second floor you'll find four bedrooms, a guest bedroom suite, a master bedroom suite, office and a terrace.
