Surrounded by expansive views of Mount Tamalpais and the bay, this cool California residence is a nature lover's dream. The modern structural design was purpose-built for its hillside location with uninterrupted scenic outlooks from every room. The home, by Jensen Architecture, features private rooms as well as a transparent living and dining pavilion with open access to the pool and outdoor patio. The minimalist construction even left most of the site undeveloped, so the native oaks and neighboring forest remain untouched. Scroll down to take the tour through photos by Mariko Reed.
