Location: Lafayette, California
The San Francisco bay area has no shortage of acclaimed homes, but the latest to cross our desk is this five-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath gem in Lafayette, California. Designed by the award-winning architect Greg Faulkner, the home juxtaposes Cor-ten steel’s rich oxidized patina with the softer texture of reclaimed redwood beams.
The home measures 5,135 square feet in total over three levels, with east-facing and clerestory windows that capture optimal light. Floor-to-ceiling slats of walnut are the centerpiece of the open-concept entertaining spaces, used both as a design element and a way to permeate the area with natural light.
Outside, 1,400 square feet of Ipe decks complement terraced patios and a top-notch pool. Throw in the hillside oak and fruit trees on 1.02 acres and unobstructed views of Mt. Diablo, and this modern marvel makes for a perfect California retreat.
If Cor-ten steel makes your heart swoon, 3983 Canyon Road is on the market now for $4,895,000.
