Architectural Notes : Why this home is special . . .
Our home is a Mid-century Modern house that offers an open-floor plan with a sense of privacy. Design sensitivity is the hallmark of this special property. The interaction and awareness of the oneness of architecture with environment is the living experience here.
An expansive 40ft wall of glass seamlessly connects the interior with an exterior that faces South into the large, mature landscaped backyard.
The backyard area includes the spacious deck, patio and lawn for outdoor dining, garden and play activities.
There is also a private place for meditative relaxation. Counterpoint to the backyard is the fully landscaped front area deliberately obscuring the house from the road view. The front entrance is accessed from the parking area along a narrow, lush pathway that curves, then opens to a secluded, white gravel "Zen" garden. From the garden, cantilevered steps lead to the private entrance.
The ground level of the open-floor house plan includes a foyer with powder room that leads to the large living / dining space. This further integrates with the eat-in kitchen, access to a smaller outdoor deck leading to second parking area. Also, on the ground level, tucked behind a glass topped "pony wall", is a hidden Master suite enclosure. This private unit includes a bedroom, an equally large dressing room and bathroom with spacious showering section.
Just off the entry foyer are steps leading up to a separate second level common space. This area is used as a work space and connects to the two bedrooms with large size beds, small library with many art books and full bathroom with twin sinks. This level is perfect for extended family and visitor privacy.
Walnut parquet, bamboo strip, architectural tile and stone flooring, wide fireplace brick hearth, interesting furnishings and original artwork throughout are all evident of the residents' personal aesthetic.
Interesting architectural spaces are integral to this home. High, sloping pine board ceilings with their massive wooden beams and supports define the space with simplicity and clarity. Spaciousness and light throughout the entire house are accentuated by skylights, cutouts, clerestory and expansive windows and glass doors. Sensitive use of structural elements and materials of wood, glass, stone and concrete incorporate the minimalist aesthetics of Modernism.
Our home is beautiful, special and unique. It is certainly a joy to simply be here.

I grew up in Finland and studied and worked in Sweden and Norway. After a few years in Paris I finished my studies at the Basel School of Design in Switzerland where I met my husband, Douglas (from CT, USA). We have lived here for 30 years now, raised two sons and enjoyed our design business. We love to travel, meet people and we recently added the last continent of South America to our list this spring. Art, culture and nature are things we enjoy and traveling with AirBnb has allowed us to get closer to the authentic experiences we like.
