Situated in the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas, Mountain House stands as a testament to an architectural brilliance and a profound connection with nature. Designed by the internationally renowned Japanese firm Atelier Bow-Wow, the property unfolds over 60 private, forested acres with the centerpiece - the meticulously designed and thoughtfully crafted residential structure settled into this lush land, bordered by the U.S. Forest Service on three sides. The architects, celebrated for their intelligent and compact designs created a livable work of art as their first and only home built in the United States. Approaching Mountain House, the facade presents an unassuming simplicity that gracefully ascends to unveil a vast terrace intended to hover - not unlike an umbrella protecting the home - a true centerpiece of this architectural gem. Inside, the essence of Japanese design permeates every corner. The three bedrooms, bunks, nooks, roof room sleeping options and a central day bed offer numerous options for family and guests to partake in visits that no other property could facilitate. With no other structure in sight, but less than 15 min from town, the property offers an exclusive connection to nature, like having your own personal nature park for you and your guests.
