Location: Coarsegold, California
This asymmetric modern home designed by architect Arthur Dyson in 1996 occupies 1.8 acres in Coarsegold, California, just outside Yosemite National Park. Clad in patinated copper and redwood inside out, the 2,220-square-foot residence features soaring, angled interiors that incorporate the site’s rock formations to create a truly indoor-outdoor space. (Dyson was, for a short time, an apprentice of Frank Lloyd Wright, whose spirit is definitely felt here.)
Glass walls, windows, and skylights open up the dramatic insides to the landscape, while the concrete floors and massive Rumford fireplace in the living room continue the connection. The unique, open-plan main level also holds the kitchen, dining area, a built-in conversation nook, as well as other custom built-ins, which are found throughout the house.
A master suite with private balcony is found upstairs (there’s a total of three bedrooms and two baths), while multiple terraces and patios surround the property. Although it could stand to be updated in parts, the home is special in its own right. Located at 29800 Yosemite Springs Parkway in Yosemite Lakes Park, this getm is offered at $590,000. It’s better better seen than read about, so check it out straight away.
