This midcentury modern style post and beam home was designed by architect Tom Lowe and constructed in 1975. True to midcentury design principles, 1035 Rispin Drive blends seamlessly into the surrounding wooded environment and was recently restored with period-specific details, including Concrete Collaborative terrazzo and Heath Ceramics tile.
At three stories, the home’s top floor great room features an open floor plan, enormous windows, and enviable outdoor access with breathtaking canyon views. Vaulted wood plank and beamed ceilings imbue this 2,314 square foot custom residence with a sense of space and calm, while a corner fireplace pays homage to the minimalism of the midentury movement. New furnace, A/C unit, whole-home air purifier, PVC roof, solar panels, and electric vehicle charging station complete the home's "smart" credentials.
A textured tile wall defines the formal dining area and adds amazing visual interest to an already beautiful home. 1035 Rispin’s modern galley kitchen offers modern appliances, bespoke ceramic backsplashes, yards of counter space, and an additional family room or breakfast nook for informal meals. A portal to the deck makes for easy entertaining.
Drenched in natural light with treetop views, the home’s three bedrooms are located on the lower level. The primary en suite is a spacious and welcoming sanctuary with ample closet space and a pristine full bath with contemporary tile walls. Wraparound windows bring the protected canyon into full view, offering fantastic views year-round.
Two other bedrooms, each with outdoor access, offer private and quiet accommodations and a shared bathroom, while a separate, private studio apartment lends additional living quarters and a bedroom for friends, family, or a spacious home office.
