Neighborhood: 699 - Not Defined, Santa Lucia Preserve
Property Taxes: $0
Architect Daniel Piechota created an intimate connection between this 2 story family residence & the hills of Santa Lucia Preserve. Siting the home amidst oaks & organizing the architecture to frame the broad valley views & peeks of The Preserve golf course, allows nature to embellish everyday life. The use of cedar, weathered steel, concrete and floor to ceiling glass connect the building to the surrounding textures from tree canopies to an open meadow. Landscape designer, Bernard Trainors use of soft grasses balanced by a granite stone garden & wide concrete pavers brings the landscape into focus. A stainless steel jacuzzi creates a quiet retreat between the master & guest wings. The outdoor living room & stone garden enjoy gentle breezes of a higher elevation. The main entrance to the home leads guests up a compressed stair sequence unveiling the sunny open courtyard and access to the main residence. Designed as a full-time residence, simplicity and livability were high priorities.
