A wooded hillside with sweeping coastline views is the setting for this distinctive modern residence. Commissioned by a noted artist and her collector husband, this Tim Nicol design demonstrates wisdom and sensitivity not often found in modern homes. At every turn, carefully placed windows frame the ocean vistas while perfectly illuminating the interiors throughout the day. A restrained palette of materials and a timeless design create the perfect backdrop for a wonderful collection. The interiors unfold in a series of carefully choreographed spaces; each created with a distinct identity and purpose. A wall of glass across the entire seaward exposure of the main level opens to the main terrace. The dining and living rooms are ethereal spaces, wrapped in glass, and taking in the views. The hand-built Bulthaup kitchen is anchored by an oversized one-piece stainless island and adjoins a courtyard garden with specimen Golden bamboo. The tranquil master suite is flooded with light and includes large bath, dressing, and closet areas. Two additional guest suites are situated on another floor for privacy. A full floor artist's studio of nearly one thousand square feet features elevated north windows, 13’ ceilings, and could be used as a guest suite, gym, theater, or other special-purpose room. Steps away, a detached garage building completes the property. Distinctive and unique, this home must be seen to be fully appreciated.
