Fair Oaks, CA

2 beds / 2.5 baths / 2,756 sq. ft / 27,700 sq. ft lot

Designed by John Harvey Carter

This custom home features a pseudo subterranean entrance, where one travels into the side of a hill which is surrounded with brick, then to the front door. One can imagine once at the front door, you can see straight through the house to the creek lined canyon beyond. There are numerous alcoves beyond each room built into the cliff-side with views to the sky above, but complete privacy.
Each of the 4 main volumes travel from within the hillside, through the main space, out to a cantilevered deck.
