Welcome to this interpretation of a Modern Organic home. This house is rooted in this place and reflective of the beauty of our Bay Area. Here even the trees seem to step aside to let the epic views take command. It is rare to have a grove of redwood and pine trees paired with these views and full of such wonderful light. The house was originally designed by local architect Claude Stoller using simple lines to elegantly enhance its setting and embrace the Bay Views and natural landscape. Stoller worked as faculty at the University of California with William Wurster. Stoller is recognized for his work in Sea Ranch California. Claude Stoller was sensitive to this environment and built the home of wood shingles to set it into the hillside. He also utilized passive solar ingenuity. The passive solar design uses the sun’s energy for the heating and cooling of living spaces by exposure to the sun. Recent design updates were made sensitive to this house’s connection to nature. The entry was dressed elegantly by adding a feature wall of tree-motif wallpaper and a branching light fixture. The kitchen backsplash repeats the theme with a marble leaf mosaic and a bright punch of pear yellow. The master bathroom was reimagined to evoke the zen quality of bamboo and Stoller’s Sea Ranch influence was brought in with the hues of the tile floors that are reminiscent of old wood saunas. The house is simple and yet grand. With three separate living rooms, five bedrooms, three baths, and two half baths, there is space here and more to share. Great separation of space sets two bedrooms on a separate wing beyond the laundry room. The lower level has a half bath, a large living room with a wet bar and a door to the deck, and another to the yard and storage room. Ample closet space and a windowed storage room provide room for years of collections. Set far back from the street, the house enjoys rare privacy enhanced by the long driveway. A two-car carport holds additional storage beneath. There is a wonderful pathway on the property that leads up towards Tilden making for a quiet walk to the park in about five minutes.
