In Healdsburg, The Perfect Modernist Retreat By Swatt Miers, $18.9MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
New to the market, and hovering gently over its pristine 38-acre site, this superbly executed Wine Country estate is the work of Swatt Miers, the San Francisco based architectural firm known for creating sweeping, elegantly detailed homes.
With a mandate from the clients to minimally intrude upon the sloping site, the house is anchored by the three-story stair tower set on the ridge, and cantilevered over the meadow into the wide-ranging views. Like the best Wine Country homes, this was designed for entertaining but with plenty of private spaces including a guest house.
What We Love: Taking cues from masters like Richard Neutra and Frank Lloyd Wright, the firm’s work is rooted in the Modernist canon, deploying materials and technology earlier architects could only dream of. Plus when it comes to impeccably executed cast-in-place concrete, what’s not to love?
