The 4th St. Residence is a unique single-family home located on a restrictive lot and designed into the back of a steep hillside. The main floor is 8 feet above the driveway, allowing for a striking elevated entry, and providing ample natural light to the lower areas. The design takes advantage of the existing grade in the upper level, by arranging the bedrooms on different levels, which provides additional privacy for the Master Suite. Utilizing the natural terrain, the rooms from the main floor open onto a private landscaped patio, succinctly connecting the home with nature. The patio steps up along the grade, with outdoor sitting spaces and planter beds for an intimate and private setting.
