The owners of this site wanted a 7000 sq. ft. home that was exciting and allowed them to live primarily on one level, leaving the lower day-lighting basement for their guests. A central full service elevator allows for easy access between floors. This open plan infuses each room with light and views of the Pacific Ocean up and down the coast. For entertaining, large glass panels facing the view can recede completely to make a seamless transition between the outside living space and the interior. City, HOA and Coastal Commission approvals were secured.
