Three years in the making (although the actual building only took about six months), the house is full of light and space. It's comfortable, clean, and modern. There are windows everywhere, and with the 21-foot retractable wall of glass leading from the living room and dining room to the courtyard deck, it's hard to tell where indoors ends and outdoors begins.
And the mix of high and low. The kitchen includes IKEA kitchen cabinets, CaesarStone countertops, and Ann Sacks tiles. What appear to be built-in bookcases are actually IKEA EXPEDIT set into a niche.
We're pretty sure that Mark and Ellen and their kids are going to be very happy when they move in after all the commotion is over. And they're going to throw some great parties in this house.
