Spectacular Calabasas Modern Home, $4.2MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Where: 1055 Cold Canyon Road, Calabasas
What: A spectacular composition of forms designed in 2008 by Abramson Teiger Architects, containing a series of generous and beautifully detailed spaces– most of which open effortlessly to the surrounding landscape with sliding walls of glass. The 4-bed, 4.5-bath home and guest house sprawls across its site at the edge of a canyon.
What We Love: This is serious architecture, but full of surprises and detail– with a rich mix of materials and an especially deft use of poured concrete.
This may be a shaded parking structure, but it’s also a monumental arch framing the view and sheltering the guest house.
With a sliding wall of glass, the sleek kitchen opens directly to a sheltered outdoor kitchen/dining pavilion.
The master suite occupies the upper level, with a spa-sized bath and outdoor space.
A media/famly room off the living room (with a bar tucked under the stairs) is the perfect solution to the age-old conundrum of where to put the TV.
