This bright living space is filled with rustic details that are fitting for the home's countryside location in the Northern California city. Three large windows offer an impeccable view of the hilly natural landscape that sits just outside and work to make the relatively small space feel much larger. Neutral sofas and armchairs create an intimate layout surrounding a wooden coffee table that looks as if it could have been carved right from one of the countless redwood trees that are so common to the region.
In the kitchen, the color scheme falls in line with the ever-popular all-white look, with the exception of just a few details. Bright white cabinets are balanced out by light wood floors, neutral countertops, and an off-white shade of paint that coats the walls. The kitchen island provides additional countertop space for preparing meals while stainless steel appliances give the room a modern touch. A large doorway then leads straight out into the formal dining room, making it an ideal kitchen for entertaining.
The dining room offers a view of the lush greenery outside in the backyard while a large round wooden table takes center stage in the space. Green canvas dining chairs circle the table where surely many dinner parties take place. It's a welcoming and inviting layout that effortlessly brings people together. Additionally, flowers add to the natural elements of the room, as does the modern largescale painting depicting a horse that hangs on the wall.
A perfectly cozy living room is filled with traditional furnishings and exudes a comfortable, lived-in atmosphere. A large hunter green sectional couch provides ample seating for gathering together in the space for a movie or just good company. There's also a classic red armchair that's accented by a casual red throw blanket. The space features expansive built-in bookshelves which are filled with a library of good reads, as well as interesting decorative objects and collectibles on full display.
Perhaps one of the most unique elements of the property is this art studio located just off of the main house. It's completely secluded, offering an ideal workspace away from distractions. We can't imagine a better place to get the creative juices flowing than in this small studio surrounded by nature. It could be used for anything from writing or sketching to painting or creating music.
Instead of looking at the spectacular view of the valley below from large windows inside, why not sit outside on this idyllic patio? From here, you can see tree-topped hills that seem to extend endlessly into the distance. It's the perfect spot to serve a meal al fresco and enjoy the truly beautiful surroundings. All you need is a glass of wine from one of the local vineyards for a perfect night in.
The backyard features a long rectangular swimming pool surrounded by a stone and brick deck. There's even a cozy cabana to steal a bit of shade in between swims, as well as plenty of lounge chair for enjoying the sunshine. Brick walls add to the rustic, almost European countryside atmosphere of the home's exterior while towering trees stand tall everywhere you look. This is about as tranquil as it gets.
