Perched elegantly on a knoll overlooking the Russian River Valley, this 22 acre retreat is surrounded by gracious oaks, fir and madrone trees. The stunning minimalistic design of this LEED Platinum certified home was inspired by a desire to sustain the environment and maximize efficiency. The floor plan incorporates a large central great room flanked by 4 bedrooms. The open kitchen showcases custom oak cabinets and a central island. Dramatic 12 ft floor-to-ceiling windows and doors span the open living spaces providing natural light, while creating a seamless indoor-outdoor experience. The exterior of the home was designed to blend in with the natural, wooded landscape. A cantilevered overhang creates an environment perfect for outdoor dining on the terrace while overlooking the 76 ft lap pool. With tremendous views and privacy, this modernist pavilion is a perfect wine country getaway only minutes to world-class wineries and restaurants.
LEED Platinum certified, 76 foot lap pool, views.
WHAT MAKES THIS A BUNGALUX
Minimalist Russian River Valley escape
- • We like this house for a bunch of different reasons.
- • First of all, it's much more low-key and understated than the rest of the Wine Country properties we've featured. It sits so simply all by itself and doesn't try to be something it's not. We like that.
- • Secondly, of course sustainability is always important to us at Bungalux. We try to choose environmentally-friendly products and houses whenever possible. This house achieved the LEED Platinum Certification. Trust us, that's not easy to get. You think your home is "green"? It would probably still fail miserably in the LEED department.
- • Oh, and we like the decor. That kitchen reminds us of one we designed last year. And, that pool ... 76 feet? You don't see that very often (outside of the Olympics).
