When you picture the perfect modern sanctuary I wouldn’t be surprised if the image of a home like The Hillside House, designed by SB Architects pops into your head. The home is nestled the hills of Northern California and was designed by Scott Lee with abundant stone, vertical rich wood, and multi-levels. The home was not only designed with style in mind, but sustainability also and is the first LEED certified home in Marin County.
Not only is the home a contemporary dream, the combination between open air living and private spaces is seamless; with bedrooms opening to the outdoors, floor to ceiling views of the lush scenery, terraces and balconies and views of the San Francisco skyline. Throughout the home are unique touches that give it an extra amount of charm, cleverly placed chalkboard walls, an outdoor bathtub, exposed beams and Eastern inspired décor. This is a hillside GEM.
