Raymond Chandler in the Twenty-First Century: A canyon hideaway in a contemporary design idiom. Rustic elements like exposed wood timbers, joists and trim, oak strip floors and cherry wood cabinets are juxtaposed with polished copper, Cor-Ten steel, expanses of white wall, skylights and butted-glass corners to convey a modern sensibility. Daylight fills even the garage, currently used as the architect’s workspace. The informal kitchen/dining area has yard access. A sculpted metal fireplace with raised stone hearth is the centerpiece of a voluminous living space overlooked by a convertible studio/sleeping area with interior and exterior balcony. 2 private downstairs bedroom suites plus loft. 3 Baths. Plans for swimming pool.
