Approached through iron gates and up the hand-set porphyry-stone driveway and motor court one is gracefully lifted to the pinnacle of an extraordinary ridge top knoll from which some of the most spectacular views imaginable are to be seen. If one could imagine to create the ultimate view outlook, one might imagine a place where the elevation is just enough to eliminate any obstruction to the vistas; where views are nearly endless over meadows and treetops in the lower foreground and out to a panorama of coastline, ocean and a string of islands on the horizon; where turning around to experience the panorama, a full East-to-West range of rugged California mountains creates a protective backdrop to define the space. This is the ultimate view home.
When world-renown architect Barry Berkus stood on this site to contemplate creating a home for his family and his extensive collection of fine art and artifacts, it was clear that this is a site that commanded the best from him, something new and exciting, a design that was derived from the extraordinary views and the veritable pedestal that the site provided, a design commensurate with the exceptional qualities of this special place.
