This lovely 3,300 square foot Nortwich Drive residence was finished by Clive Wilkinson Architects back in 2007. The home got acquired in 2004, and was constructed as Clive Wilkinson’s new house for his own use. The design needed to express the transition from commercial strip to small scale residential neighborhood, so the scale and detail respond to both conditions. Construction is simple cubic stucco forms, with exposed wood structure, and softened with landscaping.
The house is entered through a dense olive grove, and opens up with a long view through the low glass screened living room to the rear courtyard, which is dominated by a 48 ft swimming pool. The outside space is shaped by the house wrapping around it, and the large double-height social space of the kitchen/dining room overlooks the pool. The master suite is located in the rear, with its own courtyard, and has a bathroom that enjoys large glass doors to the pool and a shower that connects directly. The upstairs area is devoted to flexible bedroom, office and studio space.
