This new family home in Lafayette is located on a large, 4-acre site. The site is located on a hill and is very private with many mature oaks. The new 2-story home is located on the flattest portion of the site, where the former horse corral was. The upper, main entry into the home serves as a gallery for some of the clients’ many travel souvenirs, and moves into a tall great room space framing views of Mt. Diablo. Off the gallery is a large outdoor courtyard space for entertaining. The driveway passes the upper entry and moves around the house, passing a new workshop, guesthouse and pool, before transitioning under the dramatic cantilevered great room and deck to the lower level garage.
