$5,950,000 For an Indoor Tree House in Southern California



    A truly unique oceanfront property in Ventura, California, this custom-built, two story split-level Mediterranean features unobstructed views of the Pacific, Channel Islands, coastline and mountains. Ample use of natural materials in the interior design blur the line between indoors and outdoors, giving the home a distinct "tree house-like" feel. Two oceanside master suites, along with two guest suites are situated on the same level, while subterranean parking and a blue-glazed rooftop desk are all inter-connected via a system of staircases and an elevator.

    Elevated Design

    [OHV] Elevated Design
    Designer Erin Adams, of Brainworks, Inc., shows us that design should be everywhere--below us and above us. By employing simple techniques like emphasizing a space's natural height, adding unique wow factor elements (like a vintage storefront facade) and using colors and accessories (like paintings and photos), Erin teaches how to create a vertical design path to elevate our eyes and our home's decor. The custom living room light is by Bruce Liebert, the architectural salvage storefront facade is by Olde Goode Things.
