Modern Getaway, “The Hill House”
Looking for a modern getaway on the other side of the mountains?
This 3,000 SF house and attached garage is designed to minimize its visual impact while taking advantage of topography, views and prevailing winds. The house takes the form of a simple shed roof structure set into its hillside site. A series of on-grade terraces step up the slope to define the various spaces beneath the continuous form of the roof.
The garage and utility spaces occupy the lowest level of the house with a guest suite and exercise room on the floor above. An open living/dining kitchen space and master bedroom occupy the opposite end of the house. One enters the house between these two sets of spaces at a ‘kink; in the plan beneath the folded plane of the roof. This kink allows the house to be simultaneously oriented to an existing driveway and optimum views.
Generous glazing allows the interior to extend out to a serious of outdoor terraces while operable windows and doors allow for cross ventilation.
Priced at $1,495,000, the home is 3,412 square feet with 3 beds, 2.75 bathrooms on a little over 3 acres.
