McDaniel Residence::Steven Ehrlich, FAIA, 1988 & 2019. Steven Ehrlich reinvents his earlier version of this house as a thoroughly 21st Century entertaining compound. Broad entry stairs descend to a courtyard, a prologue to the copper-clad vault defining the main living/dining/great room. Glass sliding walls draw one to the view terraces overlooking the Village and Pacific Ocean. The horizontal hearth focuses on the unity of all 3 areas: living room, dining area,& kitchen. Elegantly simple cabinetry of the kitchen blends seamlessly with the silken oak flooring throughout. The formal entry gives way to the generous family room/study & the adjacent powder room.The midlevel provides a transition area leading to the master suite w/ terrace and a guest bedroom w/ ensuite bath. The lower-level two-bedroom suite can function as a second master with sitting room/den, guest suite, or an entire entertaining area. Superior architecture and superior setting on a cul-de-sac minutes to the Village.
