The old cliche "pretty as a picture" cannot begin to describe this gorgeous home in California with landscaping designed by Mark Scott and Associates. Though the look and feel of the exterior appear rustic and unmanicured, the designers set greenery meticulously to a render a pastoral charm and old-world sensibility. Everything about this home is relaxed, warm, elegant and utterly inviting.
This bungalow combines cedar shakes with board and batten siding to create a distinctive looking modern twist on an old theme. Lots of windows keep things bright inside and the pediment over the entrance is a unique focal point.
An expansive brick driveway leads to this sleek, contemporary home in Reno, which features a seven-car garage. The home rests on nearly seven acres in an exclusive gated community. The crisp, geometric and low-slung lines of the architecture fit the rugged desert landscape.
The newly built home is just as pretty from the front as it is from the back. Beachgoers get a view of the home's rear that features modern white lattice and a staircase that leads to the relaxing deck and pool area.
This modern home is custom-fitted to its sloping, wooded site. At the rear elevation, a garage with a slanted roof echoes the line of the nearby covered patio. Brick red trim makes the house pop among its green, leafy surroundings.
This project included a full remodel and second-story addition to a single-story modern home built in 1959. Designer Jeff Troyer used a combination of stone, synthetic wood siding and stucco––all materials which satisfy the high-fire zone requirements in this California neighborhood.
This luxury villa boasts large windows and doors that allow for easy access between indoor and outdoor areas, including a patio, living room and kitchen. The homeowners also have private access to an infinity edge pool and nearby beach, as well as a stunning view of the oceanfront.
Nestled amongst palm trees and manicured hedges, this Mediterranean-style home gives off a relaxing-yet-polished vibe. The polished brick paver driveway leads directly up to the front door and an attached garage.
