Set atop its elevated site, the individualist ethos of this seclusive 1970’s residence stands out in contrast to its sloping wooded surrounds. True to its time, this home was renovated to honor and refine its postmodern origins to suit the modern day homeowner’s family and lifestyle.
A plurality of styles is manifested in the tension between earth tones and chrome finishes, in its restraint and its departure from modernity. Textured creamy stucco walls, cypress floors, stone accents and an exotic wood fireplace surround speak to the era of the naturalist in decadent alternative natural materials. A paradox in geometry appears in the angles, grids and warm wood tones of the interior windows and wall panels and the divergent cool gray curving silhouette of the living room sofa and a tufted ottoman.
The kitchen and dining areas eclipse modernity with contrasting industrial details and natural organic shapes. Polished chrome wing-like brackets support a curving African wenge wood bar top while a softly rounded island is surfaced in daring black marinacci granite. A new oversized commercial stainless steel hood canopies a Wolf gas cooktop and is backed with a translucent sandy shaded tile splash. Elongated steel tube door hardware, flip-up glass front cabinet doors and a polished fiber optic dining room chandelier further trace the boldness of the era.
