Closed from the street with a wood-clad garage, Tesselle breezeblock walls and an entry courtyard, the sprawling floor plan is concealed from the public. It's chevron form galvanized a layout containing a slow reveal of gardens, courtyards, patios, decks, balconies and tranquil interior spaces as one traverses the edifice. Inspired by the +11,000 sq. ft. wedge-shaped lot, this new two-story home with detached accessory dwelling unit (ADU) and swimming pool / spa is organized around an existing 50-feet tall legacy elm tree.
