The almost 7,000-square-foot house is divided by a water feature and a pool, which became the central design element of the project. It begins adjacent to the driveway as a water wall around which the entry sequence is wrapped. Upon ascending to the main level of the house, the water element becomes an ornamental pool before dropping into the spa below, after which it becomes a 75-foot-long lap pool, the end of which is cantilevered over the slope into the view. The master bedroom and study are located on one side of the pool, the living areas on the other.
