Mid-Century Modern Oasis by Paul Wuesthoff, Architect


"One of a kind" home located on the Riviera Golf Course--"the rim". The grounds and home offer total privacy. As you walk through the entry gate, there is an amazing waterfall which flows through koi-filled streams and into ponds on the upper and lower level of the property. The 3-level redwood and glass home was designed by well-known architect Paul Wuesthoff in 1964. There are approximately 19 Redwoods, Canary Island pines, Fir trees and, of course, the golf course (5th hole). There is an ocean view from one of the decks. The pool/hot tub area includes a cabana/pool house and bar-b-q area. The greenhouses have fans and heaters. The home has three wood burning fireplaces, beautiful herringbone wood floors, the kitchen family room has been remodeled and includes top-of-the-line appliances. Almost every room opens to a private deck or patio. There is a 50-case wine cellar on the lower level plus a custom bonus room with 1/2 bath.

Black Desert House :: Marc Atlan Design with Oller & Pejic, Architects

Beyond shelter, Black Desert House is an artistic counter-point to a landscape born of fire, 
and sculpted over the last 100 million years. Conceived to read as a shadow cast within great 
piles of monzogranite boulders, the residence offers the quintessential desert experience: 
immersion into the timelessness of the vast desert panorama. By day the residence protects 
like a cave; at night it dissolves in the surrounding array of stars. Informed by the modernist 
aesthetic, the geometry of the structure minimizes distractions, while curtain glass walls 
eliminate indoor-outdoor distinctions. The public spaces open to the sheltered entry courtyard,
broad view terraces, and the private swimming pool.

Sited at a cooler elevation of over 4000 feet on 2.5 acres, the gated residence includes open
plan living areas, 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and a 2 car carport.
