Potrero Residence - Carmel Valley
This secluded woodland property in the hills above Carmel Valley provides wonderful opportunities for a family home and terraced landscape. Nestled amongst heritage oaks and sunny meadows, the home site affords windowed views through the canopy to distant ridges. Working closely with the arborist and architect, development boundaries were established that preserve the woodland and native meadow while capturing the best views. Access is established from the non-view side of the home, providing uncluttered, natural landscape vistas from the primary spaces. A walled court serves as both entry threshold and outdoor entertainment space, with cooking, fire and seating opportunities within the afternoon light.
