Expansive ocean views and luxurious amenities define this California Coastal Contemporary as a slice of paradise. The approximately 3,200 square-foot home features three bedrooms and three and one-half baths on the main level. There is also an approximately 1,000 square-foot basement with three flex rooms, storage closets and a mechanical room with 2,500-gallon water tank. The living rooms and bedrooms offer ADA compliant features such as level smooth thresholds and a roll-in primary suite shower with no lip. This is a custom-built home complete with beautifully designed furnishings and elements that connect to the iconic mid-century architecture in Ventura’s premium Ondulando district. Structural steel moment frames were utilized to allow expansive widths and areas of glass to the stunning view. All materials are lifelong and of highest quality: stone, cement plaster, copper, steel, white oak and fire treated cedar. Additional noteworthy features include remote-control gas fireplaces, a full family room bar with beverage coolers and an ice maker, plus an outdoor gas firepit.
This landscape was inspired by the client’s fascination for Japanese influenced art. The contrast of “Traditional” versus “Modern” can be experienced in nearly every viewing angle of the landscape. Background views such as the islands, the channel, the valleys and the mountains beyond the yard are all integrated into the design to create depth. The design uses materials that emphasize the three key elements of a Japanese design: Water, Earth and Life. Water is natural motion, seen in the featured “Waterfall” with the form of a mountain that has been shaped by water. Earth is represented by stone, both by boulders and gravel. Life is represented by the plants, which are of varying sizes, shapes and textures. Each viewing angle of the landscape has been considered to make sure there is a blending and feeling of tranquility throughout the garden.
