“Gutsy, Sculptural, Bold Geometry”…words used to describe this custom, award-winning design by architect Jim Orjala. The architecture, intentional for its canyon setting, evokes both reaching for the sun and anchoring to the earth. Every room breathes air from its connection to nature, gifting its occupant with stunning canyon views!
Immediately upon entering you are greeted by the spacious living room; its soaring ceiling lifted by glass and light bays. Descending the stairs is a welcoming embrace that inspires a sense of calm or belonging. At once spacious and embracing, from here one feels at home.
It is said that every house tells a story. Chapter by chapter the story here is one of symmetry, and creativity. A cook becomes a chef in a kitchen that blends open concept entertaining with separation of tasks. Butcher block, polished cement, and a bar top counter allow the cook, baker, and cocktail maker to flourish. Nearby on the view deck one takes pause… appreciating the beauty of the canyon and distant bay.
Multi-level angular design creates an expansive environment. The front terrace level affords semi-private outdoor living, along with a guest en suite and its private deck. The media/music room is perfect for performance and provides further sanctuary in the home.
The ultimate expression of the home’s personality is the master suite. Angles pushing outward reach for the trees. The bath blends both nature and nurture with its private deck, view soaking tub and shower room. Even the dressing area becomes a space to live in, replacing the traditional closet.
As our world expands the concept of how we live in our homes, the third bedroom can make an ideal office with incredible views or the perfect Zen retreat.
The epilogue opens with you, the next steward of this living work of art. The entire lower level is ready for further growth and new creativity. The architect began the work; angular windows and separate exterior entrance included! A potential ADU may be the perfect ending to a story written by you.
Tucked away in the wooded hills and winding streets above Oakland, Montclair is a small community with an appealing central shopping district. Sizable custom homes, along with a mix of Mediterranean, Craftsman, and contemporary-style homes are situated on forested lots, offering an elegant retreat from the city. The Montclair Business District is a throwback to a simpler time before strip malls, megamalls, and big-box stores. Residents can find everything they need, from dry cleaning and groceries to restaurants. Local restaurant favorites include the Montclair Egg Shop, Flipper’s Gourmet Burgers, and Crogan’s Montclair Restaurant. Gourmet specialty items are available at Le Bonbon, and Farmstead Wine and Cheese. A farmers market on Sundays provides fresh local produce and baked goods. Montclair is home to fine-arts festivals throughout the year and a jazz festival in the late summer that enlivens the street scene.
