2955 Chillon

The opportunity:

A single level, 2,000 square foot track home, with some decent bones, but completely not visible due to neglect, vegetation overgrowth, and standard “old school” building components. The challenge was how to create a magical, gracious, open, family home that captured the unknown view setting, while taking advantage of the privacy offered by the  large hillside lot and old growth specimens.  The existing structure had few redeeming qualities, so this meant a complete overhaul and redevelopment was required from head to toe.

The solution:

Create and capture the essence of a simpler way of living, that embraces lifestyle sensibilities like quiet and modesty, and looked to greats like Eichler and Cliff May. The new single level home features seamless integration with the outdoor making the home “live larger than it is”. A private Courtyard was created that connects two wings of private spaces, and looks through to a new rear yard which boasts panoramic ocean views of “both” Islands. A new view deck was established that flows directly out from the great room via 24’ of stack-back doors, thus completing the indoor-outdoor connection.

The home now offers a selection of materials synonymous with clean living and green sensibilities as wells as smart home features and green building parts (solar set-up) which render the home technologically advanced and ecologically responsible. Knowing “how to” Build Profitable Solutions©, 2955 Chillon Way offers many “wow” moments you and/or your clients won’t want to miss.  Available for HouseCalls©, Kimberly Norton can be reached directly for consultations at 949.464.9292.
