Stepping down from the concrete platform is a small swimming pool, and below the pool with a 40 foot elevation drop is the rear garden.

Here’s a look at one of the bedrooms that has large floor-to-ceiling windows, wide plank oak flooring and built-in shelving. A large painting above the bed adds a pop-of-color to the mostly-white room.

Board formed concrete used on the interior of the house mimics the texture of the wood siding on the exterior, and you can really it when you look down at the stairs, that are also made from concrete, however they are warmed up with carved wood handrails.

Under the stairs and on the lower floor of the home, is a home office or music room, that features a small kitchenette. A large window filling the room with natural light makes sure the space doesn’t feel dark and small.
