The owners loved the natural elements of their property but had both spatial and stylistic issues with the 1970's contemporary house on the site. Thus major renovations ensued, including selective demolition, raising of the roof, expansion of the second floor and the construction of three additions to the first floor. New windows, doors, insulation, siding and mechanical systems led to much improved energy efficiency and comfort. An abundance of French doors connect all of the main level living spaces to the outdoors and emphasize the views from within. Interior design work is by Christine Lambert of Interiors from Europe.
