CARMEL VALLEY,  CALIFORNIA

 

The 7,500 square foot hacienda is sited on a gentle grassland ridge overlooking sweeping panoramic views of a natural semi-coastal preserve. The residence evokes the story of California's early Spanish heritage and reflects the vernacular of the Monterey regional style. The forms of the house are expressed in stucco and locally quarried stone and give the house an appearance of having grown over time.
