Located near the corner of McDonald and Pacific Avenues and tucked behind a majestic Cedar of Lebanon, you will find an architect’s dream. This iconic home was designed as the personal residence of famed Santa Rosa architect, Larry Simon, who is responsible for many recognizable buildings around town. The cedar was planted by Luther Burbank himself.
Leave behind the hustle and bustle of the outside world as you enter the property’s spacious enclosed courtyard, which serves as the perfect Summer entertaining area.
The home boasts soaring ceilings that breath volume into the interior. Plentiful natural light pours in from the skylights and many large glass windows and sliding doors throughout the living areas, bedrooms and loft above.
The open floor plan connects the generous living room, kitchen and intimate dining area. Built-in cabinetry separates the family area, creating the sense of a room but still allowing it to be an integral part of the overall space.
The master bedroom feels like an oasis, with walls of sliding glass on both sides, looking out to the rear gardens. The guest bedroom also features a sliding glass door that opens to the rear garden.
The upstairs light-filled loft can serve as an open office area or perhaps small third bedroom.
Unique details include: Custom focal wall in the living room, curved wood details, oversized round window in the family room, rich wood accent wall in the dining area and much more.
This is a must-see property for someone seeking a home with style and flair (think Design Within Reach dream home) or a pied-à-terre in the wine country.
