Bear Valley Residence

The Overlook Ranch sits on a spectacular hillside site in Bear Valley, California. The main residence is the focal point of a compound that includes a 2000sf barn/workshop and a projected 1200sf guest house.

To the north, the residence opens to a wide panorama of the valley, with the Tehachapi Loop and distant Sierras all visible from the living areas. Major considerations were the natural and unobtrusive integration of the house to the site, a human scale to the spaces and the incorporation of a large body of artwork into the home and its surroundings.

Sandstone masonry highlights the exterior and interior. Ceilings of varying height, low continuous soffits and clerestory windows enliven the spaces and create a flowing, intimate interior.
