Modern Home Makes Room for Lap Pool, Bocce Court

This home from Matt Fajkus Architecture is perched on the higher side of its lot, taking advantage of the views to the southeast. By orienting the property in this way, the architects were able to make room for a standard swimming pool, a lap pool and a bocce court, which were all essential for the owners. The interior is impressive, too, with an open layout, walls of windows and stylish furniture.
