This Shingles style hipped roof residence with island views sits on a terraced ledge site and follows the topography as it steps down the hillside. The prominent hip rooflines are meant to provide a sense of shelter, through deep eaves, and tall dark green windows which meet the eave line through fine detailing and clean lines. A cupola housing a small study tops the residence allowing 180 degree views and a unique vantage point. A screen room sits adjacent to the terracing and is angled to take advantage of the adjacent cove side views and proximity to the kitchen for a sense of “tree top” dining. Extensive terracing and a lower family room provide gathering spaces and the freedom to enjoy the views and outdoors with a negative edge pool, fire pit and outdoor bar/kitchenette.
