Modern Weekend Getaway-Ken Linsteadt Architects-01-1 Kindesign

A casual weekend getaway beautifully crafted by Ken Linsteadt Architects is set amidst the hills of the Santa Lucia Preserve in Carmel, California. The private preserve features 20,000 acres of coastal foothills, with 300 estates, a Tom Fazio golf course, health spa, stables and 100 miles of trails. The residence showcases a clean, linear design that conforms to the natural landforms to capture views of the mountain range from every room. Modern details keeps this home low-maintenance and simple to entertain  family and friends. An open concept layout creates an easy flow from one space to the next.

The interiors showcase a minimalist palette of materials: local stone, recycled barn wood, earth-hued plaster walls, zinc and green roofs—feels entirely of the place.  Interiors are at once refined yet relaxed, with touches of whimsy. Beds in the cabin-like children’s bunk room are structurally supported by steel ladders. These ladders seem to be floating from the walls and offers a rustic aesthetic. Light-cathching luster has been added to the kitchen through hand-crafted glazed running bond tile as the backsplash. Additionally, an enameled stone table in the banquet area reflects sunlight. Throughout the home, troweled plaster walls have been buffed to a soft sheen.

What We Love: This casual weekend getaway features clean lines, rustic nuances and beautiful materials and finishes. Expansive picture windows magnificently frames the breathtaking views of the rugged mountainous landscape of the Santa Lucia Preserve. We also love the use of reclaimed barnwood throughout the interiors, it adds an eye-catching visual appeal and rustic-modern aesthetic.
