Holiday Rental House
Perched among boulders with incredible mountain views, is a unique architectural home constructed with old growth redwood, concrete and soaring corner glass windows. The home was designed and built by locally renowned architect Dennis McGuire. It has been photographed numerous times, including by Julius Shulman, famous photographer of mid century architecture. The house is a marvel of engineering with a very open design and soaring 25 ft wood ceilings. The architect's extensive use of glass as well as incorporating existing boulders into the house gives a seamless indoor/outdoor experience. Contributing to the living room’s character is large slice of a cedar tree serving as a coffee table, and cork bark tiles on the far wall. The master bedroom includes a king sized bed, large desk spa...Perched among boulders with incredible mountain views, is a unique architectural home constructed with old growth redwood, concrete and soaring corner glass windows.
