The highlight of the house is the central patio filled with a grid of oak trees the offers the perfect outdoor retreat even while effortlessly bringing together the different aspects of the residence.
Designed by AE Arquitectos this large and spacious home is instantly recognizable thanks to its exterior in gray that has been crafted using cut and molded volcanic rocks. The rocks give the home a personality of its own even while striking to the contemporary-urban narrative of the structure. Pinewood has been combined with the stoic presence of rock to add a warm cozy appeal to an otherwise minimal silhouette.
It is the patio that creates a transition zone between the contemporary interior and the more rustic backdrop and also links different rooms of the house with a common visual element. Panoramic views of the ranch around the house add to its interior quality even as the décor is kept elegant and unassuming. A tranquil retreat that also feels modern!
But there is plenty more to this relaxing escape than the rolling hills green pastures lovely coastline and the ocean not too far away! With smart north and south decks of the house not only offer two completely different views but also ensure that its residents have sheltered outdoor areas to enjoy both in the summer and winter months.
Every space inside the three-level home is blessed with beautiful views of the distant sea and the landscape just outside. An even more breathtaking aspect of the escape is the study that cantilevers above the main house and extends outside in a striking manner.
An open plan living reduces fragmentation of space and gives the interior a refreshing cheerful vibe. Use of large glass walls wherever the stone walls give way breathes new life into this stoic structure.
By choosing a neutral color palette anchored in white the textural beauty of the stone walls the lovely arches and the weathered ceiling wooden beams has been further enhanced in an understated fashion.
The creative folk from also ensured that the stone walls inside the house were used in a smart and striking fashion with white contemporary surfaces and finishes allowing them to shine through.
