A Secure Valley Nest Built in a Slide Zone

The house’s setback from the street and driveway create the impression that it is part of the mountain. You really have to be there to get the full effect of the surrounding peace of mountain, ocean, and valley.

However, the property has a significant grade in a slide zone, so we installed concrete grade beams in the foundation to keep it stable. As a result, the house remains secure even though the City condemned and cleared nearby lots due to soil movement.

Distinctive, white columns support the roof along the two sides facing the street and driveway, while a cute second-floor rec room over the garage captures mountain breezes and views across the valley. Throughout the property are beautiful rock walls built by the homeowner’s husband.
