In our effort to create a unique but complementary design for each of the ten custom homes in Oakmont, we took cues from the built environment of the surrounding neighborhoods. This home borrows its architectural style from the nearby Trestle Glen neighborhood’s eclectic mix of Tudor, Spanish and Cottage Revival homes.
A stair tower is one of the unique and dominant architectural features that define the exterior of this three-bedroom home. Our architect, John Newton, turned to the Arts & Crafts movement for decorative inspiration. He created original carvings and had them incorporated in the exterior wood molding that frames the stair tower and windows as well as in the balusters of the interior staircase, a built-in bench on the stair landing and the fireplace surround. Interior designer, Allison Hatcher, continued the theme in her selection of tile, lighting and colors.
This three-bedroom home’s main level is designed for family living, with a great room that opens to the garden, a formal dining room and small home office. Two large bedroom suites are located on the third floor and the third bedroom is on the lower level, along with a bathroom, laundry room and storage.
