Wood-Crafted Residence in Carmel, Calif.: Redwood-Framed House

While redwood reigns inside, teak is the wood of choice for the deck. From there, floating stairs lead to a tiered water feature. The home is surrounded by a seven-acre, award-winning garden designed by Paul Leffingwell.

Craftsman Kitchen With Chef-Grade Appliances

The abundance of redwood is broken up by stainless steel once you reach the chef kitchen. The space is stocked with heavy-duty appliances, cabinet storage and track lighting.

Stainless Steel-Topped Kitchen Island

The stainless steel countertop not only protects the top of the kitchen island, it's a durable work surface. Double prep sinks and an industrial range hood lend a no-nonsense, commercial kitchen feel.

Wood-Paneled Dining Room With Rustic Chandelier

Tall, unadorned windows brighten the heavily-paneled dining room. While the dining table may be narrow, the piece makes up for it with its generous length. A heavy chandelier tops off the rustic look.

Stunning Craftsman Living Room

Drawing strength from Frank Lloyd Write’s philosophy of organic architecture, every element of the 8,000-square-foot home was designed in relation to one another. From the Mission-style furniture to the exposed beams, the home is alive with Craftsman character.

Organic Architecture at its Finest
