This private 13-acre estate features a light green siding exterior paired with wood and stone accents, giving it a rustic look. Evergreen trees line the property, while a stream and pond provide a natural backyard water feature.
This home is located on a steeply sloping ridge top and is designed to sensitively step down with the land. The steep topography influenced the linear design as it hugs along a natural rock outcropping. The layout is perfectly harmonious to the land and sun, allowing the home to orient its long faces to the north and south while minimizing its east and west exposures.
Tall, north-facing window walls capture cool, even lighting throughout the day, while deep overhangs along the south protect from overexposure from the sun. The main roof sheds to the south, providing maximum solar collection potential. Decks and screened-in porches along the south face also provide areas for outdoor entertaining and a means to capture prevailing breezes that blow up from the canyons below.
Bright green vaulted ceilings give this transitional enclosed porch a pop of color, while the wrap-around floor-to-ceiling windows provide a stunning view of the landscaped lot outside. Colorful furniture fills the space, from the red wicker rocking chair to the large glass dining table with seating for eight guests.
This expansive deck is divided into three separate areas: a casual dining space, a cozy lounge and a conversational hangout with a fire pit. Although all three areas share the same laid-back approach, each presents a different function.
As seen on Home Town, host Ben Napier designed a raised garden in the backyard of the Campbell residence right outside the rear door for easy access when homeowner Pearl is cooking in her newly renovated kitchen.
