burnside road residence

sebastopol, California

Set back behind a three-acre parcel on Burnside Road in West Sonoma County is the seven area site for this modest 3,000 sf three bedroom, two bath home with attached two-car garage.  The site boasts privacy and the home is surrounded by a grove of eucalyptus trees on three sides.  The fourth side is open to the west with views to the distant hills and ocean beyond, visible on a clear day.

 Fitting itself into the west-facing and sloping site the house steps down, following the slope of the land, blending with nature and the micro-environment.  The modernist structure is enclosed with redwood lap siding and deep textured asphalt shingles.  The roof form slopes down to the west acknowledging the windy afternoons and providing shelter from the low west sun with a deep overhang.  The side walls of the deck reach out and open to frame the distant and scenic views.  The house is infused with light from every direction with expanses of glass and skylights.

 The house has a split-level ground floor with the living/dining room at the lowest level opening out to the covered west-facing deck.  The entry, kitchen, pantry and wine cellar, two bedrooms, bath and laundry comprise the main level.  A stair winds around the pantry and leads up to the loft/office which is open to the kitchen and living/dining areas below.  The master suite includes a wind-protected deck on the east side of the house cut into the roof above the garage.
