Laguna Seca Estates Residence

Monterey, CA

The 5,000-square-foot home features intricate stone work, clay tile roof, and a tower entryway. Colored plaster was used for both the interior and exterior of the home to create a more rustic, modeled look than traditional paint would allow. The owner, a pilot, requested a design that maximized views of the Monterey Bay as well as the local airport.

The one-story home features 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, foyer, exercise room, study, and a massive "great room" that combines the living room, dining room and kitchen. The property also includes a pool and detached three-car garage with a guest unit above.
