Rancho Santa Fe, CA

This home treads a fine line between contemporary and classic. The covenants for the community demand a Mediterranean style, but the owners were decidedly contemporary in their preference. The result is a house that meets the exterior guidelines, but interprets the rules in the cleanest, most straightforward manner.  Of course, on the inside contemporary prevails, as well as at the rear patios which are unseen by the neighbors.

The curved wall of glass in the great room is bounded outside by a curved lap pool with infinity edge. The terrace railings are glass to afford an uninterupted view of the Pacific ocean in the distance.
