When a pair with 3 youngsters acquired an vacant West Hills whole lot in 2015, the web-site was not specifically deemed “unbuildable,” like we have witnessed in preceding Assets Enjoy profiles, but with a 30-foot fall from the street, it was not essentially a cake walk both. Architect Craig Wollen of Convert Structure and contractor iBuildPdx took on the challenge, completing this modern household in 2017. It’s now on the marketplace for the initial time.

The ensuing dwelling cops a lean and minimal search from the avenue, sheathed in dim customized-stained cedar siding, with handsome pure-toned wooden accents at the front door and privacy screens. In order to abide by the topography of the lot, Wollen then instituted a 15-degree vertical bend at the center, so the back façade is a thing of a surprise: 21-foot-tall window partitions shaded by a dramatically cantilevered roofline, with terraced decks and wide, stadium-style stairs major to the property under.

The most important entry is at the upper amount, at a lobby with tile flooring and a black brick accent wall, and the household unfolds from there. The floorplan has a overall of 4,921 sq. toes, including 6 bedrooms and 4 whole baths/3 partial baths, with the upstairs devoted to kids’ and visitor bedrooms/bathrooms, a kids’ recreation area, powder place, and garage. The expressed write-up and beam structure is carried all through all those upper rooms, with several embracing the distinction amongst the significant beams and crisp white drywall.

A staircase with floating solid oak tread connects the upper amount to the major living spots beneath. There, the living room boasts vaulted ceilings and a towering black brick fireplace wall that climbs up beside the ground-to-ceiling glass, while the eating room and kitchen area are tucked at the rear of a slatted screen and have reduced ceilings for a cozier sense. Both of those kitchen and eating have customized cabinetry and quartz counters, and the kitchen’s center island comfortably seats six. A strip of large windows on the sink wall cleverly opens to a serving and seating counter at the deck outside the house.

This is just what would make Wollen’s design and style so prosperous: for this sort of a steep whole lot, the home connects to the backyard quite very easily, with a few sets of outsized glass sliding doors. There is one in between the kitchen and a crafted-in barbeque station, one at the eating area that feeds to the out of doors eating desk, and a massive established in the residing place that makes a seamless route from the couch within, to a significant, a few-sided exterior sectional wrapping a firepit.

At the yard’s reduced amount, a lot of recreation bases are covered, with multiple lounging areas and a different firepit, a tricky-scaped incredibly hot tub with close by outdoor shower, bocce ball court docket, fully-enclosed puppy run, and standalone fitness studio with its personal sauna. It is very very, way too, thanks to all the landscape design carried out by Melissa Medeiros at LANDline.

With such sweeping volumes and all individuals large home windows, there is nonetheless lots of alcoves inside of and out for adults and young children alike to curl up. On the most important level, in addition to the residing areas, there’s a family members area, powder home, pantry, examine, and the key suite with its possess fire. We specifically like how the en-suite bathroom has a personal deck with its have path to the health studio, and a window at the soaking tub that appears to be into the trees.
