As a cottage, the Ridgecrest was designed to take full advantage of a property rich in natural beauty. Each of the main houses three bedrooms, and all of the entertaining spaces, have large rear facing windows with thick craftsman style casing. A glance at the front motor court reveals a second floor guesthouse with separate entrance off to the rear. A columned front porch is tucked under the left side of the homes large forward facing gable. Centered under this gable is a grand staircase, which can be accessed off of the entry foyer, lower level corridor, and private master suite. Directly to the rear of the foyer is the living room, which has tall windows and a pair of custom cabinets flanking a natural stone fireplace. Standing in front of the fireplace reveals a visual axis that runs through the living and dining rooms, ending at the side deck. A large island anchors the open concept kitchen and dining room. On the opposite side of the main level is a private master suite, complete with spacious dressing room and double vanity master bathroom. Buffering the living room from the master bedroom, with a large built-in feature wall, is a private study. Downstairs, rooms are organized off of a linear corridor with one end being terminated by a series of spaces that are divided by large sliding barn doors, effectively transforming one end of the lower level into a spacious entertainment space.
