Interior Designer Dede Wood and her husband Steve live in a modern Californian farm house that they built from the ground up. Their labor of love is a relaxed and luxurious home.
Here are some snapshots I posted on instagram: The kitchen, the living room, and the butler's pantry with the ladies.
The house is perched atop one of the grass and oak specked hill of Santa Ynez Valley. The covered porch and the 50 meter lap pool provide some respite from the Californian Sun.
No matter where you are on the property, you are surrounded by the secluded hills of the Santa Ynez Valley. The house is "off the grid": not only is it miles from the closest town, everything is run on solar power.
Peek-a-boo from the guest room.
Hungry for more? Of course you are, I haven't even shown you two of the best rooms: the living room and the diningroom (which are fabulous, of course). Please visit the links below for more from this darling house.
