Santa Lucia Preserve Estate, Carmel, California

For a large estate in the Carmel Valley, we assisted the architect in designing a home that could accommodate an 18’ grade change. We then clustered the guest cottage, gatehouse, barns, tennis courts and other amenities close to the home, leaving the majority of the 40-acre homesite untouched. The plant palette consists of mostly native oaks, madrones and grasses, creating the impression that the 20,000-square foot residence “grows” out of the surrounding natural landscape.
