Arnold, CA…Rustic elegance defined in the Sierra! This extraordinary home bridges a creek bed amidst a meadow with stunning architecture and interiors that easily match the natural splendor of the setting. With a lower floor that can be opened to the outdoors on all sides, the home insists on family gatherings and memorable garden parties. The main floor living area is truly a Great Room with towering vaults upheld by old growth fir trusses from Yosemite above expansive travertine floors.

The masterful blend of craftsmanship, design and materials is unequalled. Literally breathtaking in person, come indulge.
