Glen Canyon::Santa Cruz, CA
Secluded at the top of a long driveway, this Craftsman style home was an extensive remodel, designed by Thacher and Thompson, Architects. A flagstone deck and hand built koi pond grace the exterior. The Cedar shingles and custom entry door welcome you into a 5400 SF interior with extensive hand-milled wood work of vertical grain Douglas Fir and American Cherry, flush-inset cabinets, handcrafted stair railings, and pine ceiling decking. Brazilian Cherry floors give the home another touch of warmth. The dry-stacked stone of the fireplace and hearth is repeated outside as a masonry veneer. Other custom touches include massive, solid granite slabs in the showers and bath surround, custom Cherry doors with full-mortise hinges and Rocky Mountain Hardware, and decorative lighting.
