Mark’s Preview Notes:
What a stunning result, but oh what a long journey as well. I remember first seeing this house in mid 2007 when it was 22261 McClellan Rd. At that time it was a half constructed shell of a house looking for an investor/flipper with enough vision and money to complete what appeared to be a rogue project. 5 years later it has transformed into a magnificent ultra modern home of concrete floors, steel beams, and commercial-grade glass windows that clearly reflect what the architect had originally envisioned.
It is very unassuming from the street, all you see is the corrugated steel siding, but just opening the door to enter the foyer and you realize you have been transported. Wall of windows, without any need for privacy screens, open to McClellan Ranch Park, giving you the feeling of being in a tree house!
Some might feel put off by the multi-level design in which each of the rooms (kitchen, living room, family room, and bedrooms) are all on slightly different levels, requiring what seems like a maze of stairs. However, after spending more time in this home you will realize the architect specifically intends the occupant to commune with nature according to each room’s unique function. Brilliant!
This is one home you really need to experience live in person to appreciate. Who wouldn’t love to call this home?!
