Monterey Idea House

Our Monterey Idea House draws from the richness of its roots in John Steinbeck country. Rustic barn buildings dot the backroads of this storybook farmland community, serving as inspiration for this lavishly textured, architecturally expansive home. At left, the open-air dining room features reclaimed redwood siding salvaged from an abandoned water tower that once served a local stage coach station.
