Description

Rental Registration #: 16-3108 This spectacular home has much structural complexity but grants you a lasting serenity. The striking Maziar Behrooz addition was added to a 2002 Alfredo De Vido original in 2011. The original is a kind of modern barn defined by simple angles, rich wood, and a soaring double-height exposed beamed living room. It has rigorous lines that continue to the gallery where it meets the addition and begins to loosen up a bit. The addition can operate independently and has its own character but references the original as it begins to catch the sun. The views relate back to the house. It's all about walking through it. When first presented with the architect's angular and experimental vision, the owners, appreciative of fine art and architecture, loved it. It plays with false perspectives as stairs narrow as one ascends or descends them and hallways change in width. False vanishing points greet you in part because the seamless resin floors have no lines to direct the eye. There doesn't seem to be a right angle in the entire 9,000 square feet. The architecture has a gentle way of guiding you smoothly from one space to the next and that playfulness is one of the addition's great delights.The overall space would blend well with an art collection or equally impressive trove of primitive art, photographs or sculptures. The central portion of the house, where hallways and stairways and the two halves begin to meet, is best described as a gallery for it's a gallant venue for a Picasso, Miro, Leger, or Degas. The floor-to-ceiling windows have ultraviolet and shading films to protect such works. The geothermal heating and cooling systems maintain a constant, pleasant temperature year round. In the library some of the structural steel beams are used to create shelving. Perfectly balanced sliding ten foot floor-to-ceiling glass doors tuck completely into the walls here, and in the master bedroom above, to make both of them open-air rooms when the weather is right. A deck off the master bedroom and the overhang above it are cantilevered allowing unobstructed views. Outside, a triangle-shaped infinity pool gives way to a meadow, a small pond, and tumbling gardens. Beyond a line of trees, there is the glimpse of a farm field. The house is like a landscape. Looking out at a roof and seeing green plants gives a sense of being grounded, not floating. The planted roof serves several functions: providing more green surface area, helping to reduce rainwater runoff and reducing energy use. Solar panels are on the top level of the roof. The home is approximates 12,000 sq.ft. which doubled the size of the original house. It has seven bedrooms (added to the three in the DeVido wing), the library, bar and wine cellar, gallery, and an attached caretaker's cottage. It's fairly grand in size, but manages not to feel that way, perhaps because it is a house that is so clearly lived in and loved..
