We've been in our home for a solid decade now and while that seems like a long time for our young family, it really is no more than a sneeze, a blink, a flutter in the grand scheme of things.
This home however has been standing since 1967 and is still inhabited and enjoyed by its original owners. The home, designed by well-known California architect Ray Kappe, sits on a hillside adjacent to a creek and if the views from the multiple floor-to-ceiling windows are any indication, the setting is a veritable verdant escape. The house itself is a symphony of wood, concrete, and glass constructed over seven levels which are in turn attached to six concrete towers. In our era of seemingly disposable everything, I love the idea that this beautiful, timeless home is still being enjoyed by its now 80-year-old designer and is as inspiring as ever.
