Custom residence 7,100 sf. + 2000 sf. attached garage
Sited on a windy hilltop in the Santa Cruz Mountains, the H shaped floor plan provides a protected entrance and rear courtyard. Executed with insulated concrete wall system to enhance seismic strength and reduce heat/cooling energy demand.
The right wing contains the master bedroom suite with parlor, two separate bathrooms and walk-in closets plus two more bedrooms with their respective baths.
The left wing houses the family room, step down breakfast, play/video room and guest unit with its bath. The central core is the living and formal dining room, kitchen and study, with a raised entry and the high-ceiling inner space open to the courtyard.
A slanted wing has a 5-car garage, restroom and exercise/project room above.
The original tiled courtyard was replaced with a swimming pool and green play area.
