PASS HOUSE - Tucked neatly into its gorgeous natural surroundings and shielded from the highway, this unique, one-of-a-kind energy-efficient home emerges from its setting to strike a signature silhouette against the sky. Its orientation, adjacent to a pond and with stunning views of forest and mountain peaks beyond, emphasizes the property’s environmental unity.


Considerable attention has been given to integrating the land’s natural features with those of the buildings to create inviting outdoor living spaces. Flagstone patios around existing rock outcroppings, two water features, a built-in BBQ and fire pit, solid mahogany decking, glass rails, and well-designed lighting and sound generate welcome harmony.


Over the course of construction, a team of fine craftsmen coordinated sophisticated interior materials and finish work. The great room features a concrete and site-stone open fi replace, cedar tongue-and-groove ceiling with fir beamwork, mahogany floors, and claro walnut cabinetry. A spiral staircase with glass treads and rusted-steel frame floats upward and, throughout the house, luxurious detail reigns. The master suite is the ultimate in comfort and design, with its bath showcasing a marble-slab shower and carved-stone bathtub, a flagstone floor, and a three-sided fireplace open to the bedroom.


This property is not just a home, it is an experience. It is a roadmap for living beautifully while honoring your environment.
