Juniper Point House

return to projects

Property covenants governing height put very severe restrictions on the design of this new house for a couple with grown children. Cut into the slope of a steep hill, stone walls anchor a single story U shaped plan enclosing a private rear terrace with a small pool. The sheltered, ground floor entry is carved from a stone walled drum (a la Lutyen’s Folly Farm) leading to a foyer (with a window into the pool) and a wide, gentle stair to the main floor. The master bedroom suite is set apart from the public body of the house. Guest bedrooms march up the slope of the hill from the living area.
