After a previous build and now having four young children – this family knew exactly what they wanted when it came to the room sizes
and space relations in their new custom home.
Project Style: Contemporary
Size: 6 bedrooms; 6.5 bathrooms; Over 8,000 sq. ft
Home Story: The homeowners sought to combine their love of contemporary style and open water with the practical needs of their growing family. Referred by a Sunset Properties’ client, and after securing the perfect property, this family was in
go-mode. Working with Sunset’s architect,
every buildable inch of this corner waterfront lot was maximized.

This contemporary design is uniquely enhanced by eight, 10’x4′ Corten steel panels secured to the front façade. The steel’s natural oxidizing process will function as an ongoing art installation for years to come. A five-foot wide, pivoting, front entry door leads to the spacious foyer’s stunning, all-glass wine room. 320 bottles, kept at 50°, sparkle from ceiling to floor suspended by an almost invisible, intricate cable system. Across the foyer pre-cast concrete treads, adhered to a steel backbone, form the main staircase. The staircase is framed with stainless steel cable railings, capped in Ipe wood, that continue throughout the second floor walkway.
Getting hungry? Move to the kitchen where two quartz-topped islands serve indoor needs while an entirely retractable bi-fold window wall opens the kitchen peninsula to the outside patio. Cantilevered, puck-lit shelves provide display areas along the white, counter-to-ceiling, herringbone-tiled walls. The living room features a 60″ linear, in-wall fireplace surrounded with chiseled black slate followed by Brazilian walnut to the ceiling. Glass retractable Euro-walls in the living room as well as the office continue to encourage indoor/outdoor festivities. The master bedroom’s accent wall is entirely clad in Brazilian walnut highlighted by integrated, floating nightstands and headboard. The en suite has a free-standing contemporary tub and faucet as well as an infinity-drain, curbless shower plus waterproof TV. A custom quartz countertop with twin infinity-drain sinks top the floating master bath’s cabinetry.
Outside – The contemporary grid design in the driveway is formed by 4″ wide channels of artificial grass, making an excellent surface for impromptu T-ball games and light saber battles. Precast concrete makes another appearance surrounding the pool and as the bridge steps between
the spa and pool.
