Canyon home with Architectural integrity designed by Steven Ehrlich. The house was designed to interplay with the hillside at its rear. The striking black stainless steel clad entry draws you in. The design reverses the usual order with the bedrooms forming a platform for the second & third story public areas, where skylights & the extensive use of openings bring in light & breeze. The two story living room with walls ideal for displaying art. The custom kitchen has a breakfast area & state of the art appliances. Master bedroom with fireplace & walk-in closet. The third story is dedicat ed to a studio with attached bedroom & deck. The canyon wall forms a natural protective barrier against the city, while the upper levels of the house offer access to light and canyon views. Each story has a garden terrace, the upper two reached via bridges leading from the second & third floors. The courtyard faade of the house is a wall of glass, linking level to level & indoors with outdoors.
