Mid-Century Canyon Luxe. Hidden away in the sought after Lower Marquez Knoll neighborhood, a classic Ray Kappe Post and Beam 1956 home is seamlessly joined with a full remodel by Barbara Callas, and a "Bauhaus inspired bridge from the original structure to its striking addition: which rises through an arbor of oaks - an architectural allegory that spans 20th Century American Modernity to 21st Century Modernism." Enter the walled garden, and step down past a sleek pool, with a sheet of water spilling down, in this sylvan canyon setting, and enter the dramatic glass tower. The original expanses of glass and wood draw you to the serene canyon setting. Expansive glass walls, soaring ceilings, bold angles, and the strong geometry of Kappe's Post and Beam construct, all serve to make life here at one with the natural world, just outside the doors. A skylit library opens to a peaceful zen garden, meant for meditative mornings. The living room, warmed by a Mayan inspired fireplace, opens to a wide deck overlooking the seasonal creek below. A formal dining room sits next to an open plan kitchen, breakfast room, and second living room, and a bravura fireplace, and another garden, just outside walls of glass. The Main Suite is a Tour de Force of modernism setting your private life in the middle of the oak canopy. High ceilings and soaring walls of glass open to a private deck. A sybaritic, open, ensuite with Terrazo floors, a sleek tub, all set in a wetroom that opens to the pool. Get ready for your day in the luxurious, skylit walk in closet. On the lowest level, 2 more bedroom suites sit creekside. A Hue lighting system can be programmed to set any color mood. Just minutes from top-tier schools, upscale shopping, dining, entertainment, and the beach, this hideaway feels like it is a million miles away.
