The property is located on the outskirts of the neighborhood and is predominately surrounded by mature hardwoods, most of which were preserved during construction. The home sits within the slope of a natural hill on the site, providing access to both the main and lower levels. This home pushes the boundaries of the strict neighborhood design guidelines, where traditional style and Craftsman era details are prevalent. Traditional materials, like brick and siding with accents of stone, were used to satisfy those restrictions; however, they were used in a modern way.
Modern exterior touches are a prelude to what is inside: a very simple, open floor plan with an abundance of light and views to the outdoors. The connection between the interior and exterior was a priority for the owner, and to strengthen it, numerous windows and sliding doors were used. Dark-stained wood accents bring another outdoor element into the home, which has a simple grayscale interior palette. With a strong emphasis on light, the house harnesses the natural light during the day, while the interior glows at night.
