Surrounded by mountains and situated on a sloped lot, the house has landscaping that makes it easy to enjoy the views, including a large patio that meets an infinity edge swimming pool.

The large wood roof creates a cover for an outdoor seating area, while large windows and sliding glass doors allow the natural light to filter through to the interior of the home.

Inside, the pigmented concrete walls create a colorful backdrop for a bar and living room, and the dining room. A long hallway connects the various areas of the home and leads to the bedrooms.
