This lauded architectural gem overlooks a panoramic, pastoral view of Rutherford from its solitary perch near Auberge du Soleil. From the base of Rutherford Hill Road ascend a private, wooded drive to an outpost of civilization, overlooking vineyards, lakes, and Mount Saint John. This two bedroom, two bathroom house, sitting on 20+ acres, has featured in numerous publications and has been acclaimed for its siting and efficiency, and also its use of conventional materials which still today, 20 years after its construction, elicit a sense of unity and contemporary design. Though lean in design, it is warm in personality. The main floor features a Pullman kitchen opposite a soaring window that overlooks a rectilinear pool and, beyond, the valley. Balanced on one side of this axis is a large alcove, suitable for reading or naps, and opposite the alcove is a Rumsford fireplace. Adding to the warmth of the room is the vibrant color combination of the charcoal blue pool surrounded by its raspberry colored concrete decking. The second floor accommodates the two bedrooms, both with valley views, and one with a private balcony facing south and east. The top floor rests under the apex of the house and is suitable as a spacious office, sleeping area - or power spot for yoga and meditation. One step inside this modern, symmetrical, mountain retreat and you'll understand why its architectural acclaim ranks on a par with its sweeping, storybook views of the valley below.
