If the essence of art is a unique perspective on daily life, then homes should be built to inspire.
Living at Terrazza means embracing a truly unique home in a setting of unmatched natural beauty. With all the functionality of this home, the tasks of daily living can be accomplished comfortably with less energy.
Comfort was a top consideration for Terrazza’s builders and designers. To keep residents cool and comfortable amidst the abundance of sunlight, extra deep eaves were built in above the large banks of windows to reduce the amount of heat entering the house – a feature that also reduces energy usage on the home’s air conditioning system, which is seldom used. Comfort and energy efficiency are also enhanced through a massive heat exchange system.
Beyond comfort, this home offers outstanding functionality and versatility. First off, throughout the home, twice the number of electrical outlets required by the building code were installed for optimum flexibility.
On the main floor, the library can serve as an office, sitting room, or even bedroom with its own entrance. As a backdrop, the main floor is wired for music when your electronics are installed.
On the lower level, optional uses abound. Starting with its own entrance, the bedroom on this level could be a nanny suite, an in-law suite, a student’s suite, a hobby room or a painter’s studio. The games room could also be a gym or a yoga studio and has served as a music studio in the past. Further, there is a spacious laundry room, storage area and potential for a dumb waiter.
At the east end of this level, you access the two car garage which has been completely outfitted with cabinetry and a slot wall system for maximum space efficiency.
Functionality continues outside. There are 12 power outlets on the south-facing terrace, plus four natural gas connections for firing up a BBQ or deploying heaters to stave off an evening’s chill. The grounds are wired with 9 distinct lighting areas – comprising over 60 exterior lights – and are programmable by a panel control system.
The simple act of waking up in this home can be a treasured moment, as soaring views of the ocean and landscape create an inspired beginning to each day.
