    Not bad if you like the style.

    It’s OK. Not great, but just OK. The furniture is a disaster, and the Judy Jetson fireplace needs to go. But, the house itself is not bad and has lots of possibilities. I like the recessed art space in the hallway, but I sure hope those windows block a lot of UV light.

    I like it. It’s something different you know. I like the wood on the exterior, the trees in the background.
    What I love the most though, are the huge walls of glass. If you have the privacy and if it fits the style of the house I adore that. Just love walking/sitting/sleeping/peeing inside along the windows, seeing the grounds/forest etc.

    I dunno guys… I just can’t get myself to see the appeal of houses in this style/genre. I try to look at it with an open mind, but it doesn’t work. I guess it’s a love it or hate it sort of thing; to each his own I suppose.

    5,600 sq ft – probably one of the smaller houses you’ve highlighted. With 5 beds/6 baths in there, it might be a little cramped? I like the use of wood and contrasting colors. It looks very nice compared to similar houses. Pictures probably don’t do it justice, but the materials look awfully cheap. Again, this looks like something people create in The Sims. That lighting is pretty crazy with the huge, trippy globe hanging down. Looking at the thumbnail, I thought there was something wrong with the camera/picture. Weird. The surrounds are very, very nice and matches this house well. The outdoor seating looks very comfortable. I’d love to sit out there with a cold drink and soak in the view. I can appreciate the “green” efficiency aspect of this house. To me, this is easily the quintessential modern California home. It would also make a fantastic get-away destination for those who need a summer/vacation residency.

    This home has a lot of design cues and features that I don’t normally like (hell, I’m not a fan of contemporary homes in general) but I really really like this place. One of my main complaints concerning contemporaries is that they often feel cold. That’s the reason I like plenty of wood and warm-looking stone on the ones I do like, and this one has that. For a new-build, this home does a wonderful job slipping into its surroundings, rather than looking like a massive area was cleared for it. The mature trees very close to the home are wonderful. Inside, the design is minimalistic without being too “empty” and cold-looking, and while I don’t like the furniture, the actual home is welcoming and warm.

    The scenery is fantastic, and while some on this site would find 5,600 sf “tiny”, it looks like it’s the perfect size for this particular home.

    Random note…does anyone else think the sinks in the master bathroom are freakishly low? You’d have to be bent double to use them!

      Maybe you’re tricked by the weird photo?

      The photo is very weird at the point where the bottom of the cabinet meets the floor. The cabinet hangs on the wall. So I guess the height is ok…I guess…

    I am a fan of this style but it has to be in just the right location and I am not sure that this is it. I would love to have this house sitting up in a canyon above Boulder, Co. I could see myself sitting in the house on a snowy day watching the snow fall and the deer. Would get rid of all that purple and that white sphere chandelier. Big fan of the gallery. Not a big fan of that grey (formica?) island in the kitchen. I can definitely see the appeal of this place.
