Rancho California

About This Project

This 6400 square foot Rancho California home in the equestrian ranch setting is accessed via a gently sloping drive along white fenced pastures and is situated on a rise overlooking a pool terrace and the lower pastures, corrals and barn. A contemporary Spanish-influenced style, the deep beam latticed terrace and spa pavilion facilitate exterior living. Steps follow the grade to a pool terrace formed by relocating on-site boulders.

The spa pavilion provides a sense of enclosure as well as a focal point for the terrace. Stucco columns and beams provide substance while lattice beams shade the terrace while allowing for circulation. In the background a curved stair to the sun deck wraps around a fireplace. Sheltered entry doors are framed in glass block.

A galleria intersected by a series of arches connect and unify the interior spaces giving contemporary expression to the spanish derivation. The galleria steps down with the site into a comfortable family living area. A commercial type refrigerator and central island are the focal points in the kitchen work triangle. A large sloping skylight adds light and dynamics to the space. A convenient curved bar serves both interior and exterior. The master suite provides ample space for sitting in front of the curved fireplace. The master bath features a large circular walk-in shower and a fireplace adjacent to the tub.
