Modern Style – South Bay Home II

Conceived in collaboration with IR Architects, this 3,200-square-foot, modern-style home is clean, bold and eye-catching. Against an exterior clad in smooth, white stucco, the glass panels encased in metal cladding create a striking triangular façade that allows sunlight to flood the floating staircase. The adjoining horizontal, dark wooden panel adds a surprising splash of warmth and color and is repeated in the interior, just above the stairwell.

In contrast to the mostly white exterior, dark grey tiled stairs draw you to-ward the front entrance, past tiered rectangular planters overflowing with greenery. The open floor plan between the kitchen and living areas, with wide sight lines and an un-cluttered aesthetic, creates a sense of cheerful spaciousness. The honeyed red oak floors and abundance of natural light add to the ambiance of the space, creating a warm and cozy interior.

The sleek, white cabinetry in the kitchen is crisp and fresh, reducing visual noise and drawing attention to the striking Crema Antartida granite bar counter and backsplash. The entertainment space features a fireplace with a grey chiseled limestone mantle and a bar backsplash of Calacatta Zebrino marble tiles.

The staggered backyard features an outdoor kitchen and dining area, wood deck and swimming pool.
