A formal residence and guesthouse expresses the grand style of French chateaux with traditional details and double height spaces. Surrounded by redwoods and heritage oaks and located on opposite banks of a seasonal creek, careful siting honors the clients’ desire for privacy—both diminishing the presence of the house from the street and maintaining the scale of the neighborhood.
