The area is known for its architecture as well as stunning topography. Here is a view of the front entry. While this house was very unique, it is a great example of the building style of the area. Very few homes were stained or painted and instead were grey like this one.I love succulents, they have are so much like sculpture. The house had a succulent garden inside the gates that was there long before Flora Grubb.
Because it is a family vacation home instead of a rental, there were all sorts of artifacts the family had collected over the years to discover.
Here is the back porch...in other locations the stark linearity of the structures would make them stand out, but in this landscape they recede into the landscape somehow, their jagged edges feeling more like ancient rocks than like modern design.
Generations of family photos were mounted on driftwood and hung throughout.
The Master Bedroom was papered in grasscloth, with an assortment of poppy paintings and photographs clustered above the bed. (It is the California state flower!)
