Softly set on a ridge between large rock formations and towering pines, this masterfully considered home by esteemed local architect Dennis McGuire appears to have grown out of its natural surroundings. Built with old growth redwood, the two story home is oriented towards Idyllwild's most iconic views like Suicide and Tahquitz Peaks. Its interior spaces are connected and open, and their sophisticated relationships provide architectural delight. Three decks project into the landscape from the primary spaces to facilitate indoor-outdoor connection. The first deck welcomes you to the loft-like home. The living room features a built-in sectional above which continuous glass illuminates the mountain views. It flows into the double height dining area, which opens onto the second deck. A bar separates the dining area from the open kitchen. Up the intricately detailed stair is a spacious bedroom on one side and an open mezzanine flex space on the other. A third deck, appearing to be supported by a large boulder, projects from the mezzanine. McGuire's environmentally-driven design provides an exceptional way to experience the natural setting of Idyllwild.''
