Inside, a 3-level glass bridge and open tread stair illuminates the circulation of the home. Skylights from above filter natural light down thru to the basement and LEDs light each glass bridge for a playful pop of color.

The family room has been designed for living the California lifestyle by blurring the lines between inside and out. Large glass pocketing doors open up the entire corner of the living room to the covered outdoor patio and pool beyond.

The outdoor areas are ideal for entertaining. Just off the living room is a small covered dining area that opens up to the patio, backyard and swimming pool.

With tranquil views of the lush landscape and redwoods reflecting on the pool, the outdoor fire pit and lounge area form a relaxing outdoor space.

Back inside, the dining room sits beside a wood accent wall and a channel glass partition, while sculptural pendant lights add an artistic flair to the room.

In the kitchen, the palette reflects the colors and materials used on the exterior of the house. Marble countertops are paired with stained base cabinets that match the exterior wood siding of the house, while a dark grey hood and upper cabinets match the exterior metal elements.

There’s also a sitting room with a hidden home office. In the adjacent light well, sculptural rock formations help create an element of interest, tying back to the outdoor landscape.
