Nestled at the end of a quiet unassuming alley, sits a house that defies descriptions but encourages experience. This unique and innovative home is the mark of an artist influenced by Asian/zen concepts (earth, sky, and spirit) to reinterpret the original Louis Sauer Design. We begin on the lower level (stone), a quiet space with hand-padded custom concrete that is naturally cooling in the warm summer months. A wood burning fireplace brings an earthy warmth in the cooler months, all accented by the lovely paved patio that sits outside the tall-windowed walls, a pleasant sanctuary for enjoying the outdoors. A 'stage' area, perched at the back, can be used for yoga, workouts or a kiddie play area. The second level (forest) features a full kitchen that speaks with custom concrete counters, gas range, blackboard walls (for messages and artwork) under cabinet refrigerators and freezer, efficient storage, and a cozy bar counter. Here we see the Tree of Utility, a unique carpentered pillar that holds functional or playful items i.e. light switches, pads, pencils, etc. There is a nice sized dining area with an open wall that looks out onto enormous slanted windows, allowing lots of light to flow through the space. A storage/mud room sits to another side of the entry foyer as does a convenient half bath. The third level (cloud) is a spacious white wonderland, free of distraction, a place for reflection and restful sleep. It is a most stunning feature and is filled with creative details and design. A large bath holds a rainfall shower, a handsome custom concrete vanity hugs the mirrored wall, and single unit washer/dryer sits comfortably in a laundry closet. The top level is an open creative space, currently used as a studio, but easily reconfigured as a third master suite. It is an expansive space, filled with light, several closet areas, and a full bath with a tiled shower. A roof patio sits outside glass sliding doors to be enjoyed during seasonal weather. The sustainable design includes 8 solar panels and a full house water filtration system. In the ABNB world, this is known as the Wabi-Sabi house. It has proved to be a comforting home, a creative space, as well as a lucrative investment option. It is an ideal location in the Washington Sq West neighborhood, with easy access to Segar Park, Whole Foods, the Broad St Cultural Corridor, 13th st Restaurant Row.
