This two-story contemporary craftsman style residence was designed by award winning studio Taylor Lombardo Architects, located in Portola Valley, California. A sumptuous, open concept floorplan encompasses 5,500 square feet of living space spread out over two levels.
The highlight of this home is the double volume living room with exposes trusses and floor-to-ceiling fireplace as the central focal point. A beautiful drum pendant light helps to illuminate this bright and airy space in the evening. The farmhouse also includes a below grade parking garage and a swimming pool with a pool cabana.
What We Love: Every detail of this Craftsman style house has been well thought out and beautifully executed. We especially love that every bedroom features a built-in window seat, adding a sense of warmth and comfort. The interiors are very inviting throughout this home, overall a gorgeous family home that is very livable.

Above: Beautiful French doors helps blur the boundaries between indoors and out in the open concept living, dining room and kitchen. This also helps to extend the entertaining areas by providing direct access to the outdoor patios and swimming pool area.
Above: The kitchen countertop on the island is walnut, while the perimeter countertops are a white marble with gray veining. The flooring is a wide plank, reclaimed wood with a rich custom stain and finished with a urethane-based surface sealant. A big advantage to this sealant is that it is very durable — stain and water resistant. It is often used in high traffic areas, with the only maintenance being the occasional dusting and mopping.
Above: The bathroom features a serene environment with just the perfect amount of unexpected richness from the wood doors.
Above: The stone walls of this outside covered porch is Mountain Lodge Fieldstone in grey tones — sourced from Maiden Stone.
Above: A sumptuous swimming pool is complimented by a beautiful stone clad pool cabana. An outdoor shower on the side allows swimmers to get refreshed after a dip in the pool.
