Two renowned architects: one also a longtime writer, editor and critic — designed this expressive Modernist home in the hills of Sonoma. The home has a split-level footprint to follow the gentle slope of the land. The layout is both lucid & idealistic with highly functional, flexible spaces laid out in a long rectilinear plan with a soothing horizontality. Its earthquake-resistant construction uses recycled foam and poured concrete finished with shot-earth inside & out producing 18” thick walls. Tongue & groove ceilings of reclaimed wood & integrally dyed concrete floors. Approx. 2,400 sq. ft. floor plan feels unpretentiously grand. Most rooms are oriented to the northwest & appreciate sunset valley views. Built-in bookshelves remain subordinate to the home’s well-considered architecture. The unique pocket doors of almost 12’ are a feature throughout, easily rolled back to create a sense of seamless open living. Windows are aligned to create vast, easy vantages. Entry level begins with kitchen, breakfast room, television room & study. At their edge is a lengthy clerestory that illuminates spaces on either side of the home’s central axis. Galley-style kitchen has a green glass wall, a welcome splash of color reflecting the front garden. Open-plan living/dining rm, at its heart is a fireplace with red chimney & surround of perforated aluminum tiles adding a sleek “industrial” modernity. Glass doors open to terrace & steps beyond lap pool & surrounded by bucolic hills of Sonoma. Glass walls in master suite overlook the pool & view. The guest suite overlooks the natural surrounding & adjoining is a library.Tucked amid the gardens is a detached glass-walled, light-filled pavilion with 1/2 ba, approx. 400 sq. ft., functions as a working studio/guest rm. This modern “cube” is cantilevered & seems to float above the land. Says one of its owners, “It’s five acres that feels like 100.” Located minutes above the historic town of Sonoma in The Ranch. Approx. 1 hr from SF.
