You return home to one of your five parking spaces, charge your car from behind your wall of warm Cumaru wood, and re-enter your haven.
You stride through the entry area into the great room, appreciating the wide-plank engineered oak under your feet. The sliding glass on the far side is already open, and you gaze out, unobstructed, onto tremendous views out across Devonshire Canyon. Your south-facing upper deck feels like an extension of the Great Room, and both are bathed in the glorious sunset. The scent of Eucalyptus from the nearby towering tree wafts by.
Your 2018-vintage midcentury modern kitchen beckons you, with its clean horizontal lines of the blizzard quartz countertop. The upper cabinets of warm oak hide undercabinet lighting that subtly draws your focus to your extended backsplash of diamond hexagon tile. Everything is cleverly hidden away, with articulating shelves and hidden storage, yet a full suite of Miele appliances subtly awaits your command. Dual paneled doors conceal the refrigerator. The induction cooktop hides in plain sight, all serene bold lines. Even your integrated coffee system adds to your sense of serenity with its understated utility. All are gently lit by the skylight overhead.
Each bathroom continues the efficient and clean look of your home. Blu Bathworks vanity tops with integrated sink basins rest atop floating cabinets of rough oak and are surmounted by gleaming Dornbracht plumbing fixtures. The heated toilets by Toto and Duravit are wall-mounted and sleek. The bold horizontal lines continue in the shower, under the custom-built medicine cabinet, and are accentuated by recessed lighting.
Descending the stairs to the lower level, your hand follows the gentle curves of the custom wood railing as you descend past the multi-story Kristjana S Williams wall mural. Your primary bedroom features a sliding door to your private shaded second deck. The Cellar contains hundreds of square feet of storage, your large-format washer and dryer, and the mechanical systems of the house.
You feel proud of how environmentally friendly your home is. It’s not just artfully designed to give you a relaxed sensory experience… it's built as an eco-friendly house of the future. Solar panels on the roof produce much of the electricity needed for daily life. All the appliances are electric, even though the gas meter still exists for future needs. Instead of a fuel-burning furnace, your heat and air conditioning come from a heat pump, which cleverly transports heat from inside to outside, or vice-versa, as needed. All of this creates your feeling of pride in knowing that you have lower costs and lower emissions and are doing your part to help the environment.
