Perched on 50 acres on a breathtaking hilltop, this contemporary home is a singular place where rarefied location, flawless modern design, relaxed spaces, and superlative views meet.
The grounds leading up to the home are composed of a stretch of minimalist modern xeriscaping, with trees, grasses, and gravel giving way to a shady wraparound portal at the entry...
the centerpiece of which is a distinctive wood-and-glass door.
A specially designed pivoting allows the artful custom 800-pound wood-and-glass front door to be opened with ease. Inside, a gallery-style foyer opens directly to the great room and its expansive mountain-view window wall.
The foyer runs along the front of the home, linking the two private bedroom wings.
