Hidden among California oaks and ideally located in the Claremont Hills, this elegant Contemporary style home was designed by respected Bay Area architect John F. Grim from himself and his family. Inspired by some of the distinct architectural detail found in the Big Sur restaurant "Nepenthe", the graceful open floor plan features tall exposed wood-beamed ceilings, warm wood paneling and flooring, and enormous windows to the to serene verdant views. From the moment you walk through the front door highlighted by a stained glass sidelight designed by Owen Gabbert, you know you are somewhere special. The lovely home features Three+ bedrooms, two baths including a light-filled master suite with a large walk-in closet. There is an open living room/dining room area with fantastic views, stunning fireplace, and French doors to two separate decks. The sleek kitchen overlooks the dining room and views.
