Klopf Architecture designed and Van Gelder Construction built a new warm, modern residence to replace an existing ranch home. The owners, who previously lived in a Streng home (similar to an Eichler), liked clean lines, simple details, and openness to the outdoors. The site is a large plot in a semi-rural area surrounded by an open field, large oak trees and a seasonal creek. It is a calm environment that invites a close connection with the house. The house is a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath, and 2,633 square foot that is intended to be the home this couple will live in for a long time.
