On The Edge…

IMG_1768A dip in the pool might feel infinite in more ways than one, both for the unending views beyond the water’s horizon, combined with such boundless luxuries in which you’re enveloped. From the far-reaching edge of a completely private backyard, into limitless interior living spaces intelligently balancing fire, water and glass to yield an ideal combination of warmth, texture and openness, this brand-new construction tells its own story in no way words can match. Pool and all, 1740 Bel Air Road sits proudly on the edge– the cutting edge that is– of contemporary architecture, modern decor and unapologetic opulence sure to shine for decades.

From above Beyond...

From inside... As it stands...

“Inside Out”

1281 backyard 1281 inside out

Such a seamless transition from living room to pool– five good steps to be exact– effortlessly unites interior space with the outdoors.  The fact that an entire uninterrupted stretch of living room– from bar past fireplace to kitchen– literally peels open in one grand disappearance of glass to the view-lined backyard, dramatically cements this union.  Meanwhile, the abundant remainder of this striking yet inviting home remains to be discovered.  Altogether, the many contemporary architectural elements of 1281 Loma Vista Drive truly bring the “inside out.”

A Passing Moment…

At long last, the view from my Santa Barbara living room could be mistaken for a Caribbean hurricane or Chinese typhoon, if only for a passing moment or two.  But then, this may very well be the first weather windfall of many we shall see in the coming weeks.  What a change!
