Designed for a client raised in England and France, this house is a cross channel combination of English Palladianism and late French Renaissance elements. Home to an energetic, lively family, this house was designed for entertaining on a grand scale. The main floor is a series of gracious public room that can all work together. Seeing the home come alive with a lavish buffet set up in the dining room, the Living Room and Library set up for seating for 50 guests! After dinner, the children play in the family room while the adults dance in the marble floored entrance hall.
Upstairs the four bedrooms occupy the four corners of the home to take advantage of natural cross ventilation in the temperate California climate. The succession of spaces that make up the master suite begins with a vaulted sitting room placed on the main axis of the house. On that same axis is a terrace overlooking the pool. Once through the master bedroom there is the decadent bathroom with a barrel-vaulted ceiling, a freestanding soaking tub, and a fireplace. Adjacent to this are the closets, imagined as his and her boutiques.
