Truly one of a kind, this rustic Japanese farm house was custom built from solid old growth redwood for all structural members plus cedar tongue and grove planks for ceilings and walls. Built in pods around a central courtyard and pond, the kitchen is separated from the living and sleeping areas and all areas are interconnected by covered walkways or decks. Shoji doors open to nature or close for privacy and protection from the weather. Each living section or "pod" is private from the other and each enjoys views to the surrounding gardens as well as a screened venting cupola in the roof to aid airflow. True indoor/outdoor living! With so much of the living area open to nature, one huge benefit is the detached carport with a large workshop, music/art studio or "man cave". The owner, a skilled musician, makes use of this space as his music studio for practice as well as a secure dry room to store his sound equipment and instruments. The home sits back privately on the lot, not visible from the road. As you drive onto the property you will pass a carport type of structure. This is another work space for carpentry projects. The house is surrounded by mature fruit trees and ornamentals in a park-like setting as well as a small orchard of Cacao and Coffee. A map illustrating type and location of plants in the garden is attached at the tool bar. Owner has recently completed some lovely kitchen upgrades to include the construction of a Walnut butcher block with storage drawers on wheels. This useful and beautiful piece will stay with the home. The Poplar cabinetry is in excellent condition and is highlighted by new porcelain tile counter tops, a large stainless sink and stainless appliances. This has been the seller's favorite home ever lived in but it's time to scale down and let someone else enjoy such a unique living experience. Truly one of a kind!
