A modest bridge leads from the hill brow to a 4,300 square foot compound that explodes with space and view. The topmost level consists of living-dining areas with 14-foot ceilings, kitchen, library, guest bath and a deck that wraps the main space leading to an outside office. Midlevel hosts 2 guest bedrooms and bath, master suite with bath, media room with separate entry and adjacent wine cellar. The lower level comprises the studio by architect Patrick Tighe, winner of the 2001 Honor Award for interior architecture from the AIA: bedroom/den, office/music room and ‘suspended’ bath. The private gardens consist of a fern grotto, waterfall, spa and dining terrace. An artful complex which looks northward across the Valley lights to distant San Gabriels and a peak of Los Padres.
