Nestled in the hilltops of Beverly Hills, this gorgeous modern farmhouse was designed by AD100 Architect, Howard Backen (known for being the Master of the Modern Farmhouse). Completed in winter of 2019, this home is a perfect balance of rustic simplicity and refined elegance. It’s a fresh, modern take on contemporary luxury living. The main house features reclaimed barnwood, board form concrete walls, floor to ceiling glass and steel doors that open to outdoor living spaces. The guest house / entertainment barn was made with reclaimed barnwood on the interior and exterior walls, vaulted ceilings and beams, and stunning floor to ceiling glass and steel doors. This sustainable home is powered by photovoltaics and the on-site well provides irrigation to this incredible 6-acre property.
