Description

The house is a “California Craftsman” with added features that hint of Hawaiian or Australian design.  The house is entered through gracefully arched mahogany and walnut gates to a 1700 square foot private courtyard of large slate flagstones. The dominant feature is a custom stone-faced tile spa lined with gleaming glass tile mosaics. Lush landscaping completes the patio to create a tropical garden setting. The house has an Old World charm, with accents of smooth stucco, old-growth cedar shingles, shaped beams and covered porches.  The house feels like a mountain cabin – on the coast. 

House features:

    1. “Loewen” windows and doors with fir interiors and aluminum clad, “top-of-the-line” exteriors
    2. Concrete countertops with abalone inlays
    3. Oil-rubbed bronze plumbing fixtures
    4. Tumbled marble bathroom tile
    5. Open-beam ceilings accented by authentic barn-wood ceilings
    6. “Hand-hewn” wooden ceiling trusses with heavy-duty hardware
    7. Venetian plastered ceilings
    8. Hand-scraped hickory floors
    9. African mahogany floors and ceilings
    10. Distressed and wire-brushed window trims and baseboard
    11. Cable lighting
    12. Custom cabinetry
