With its driftwood hues and nautical influences, this 1970s California seaside home by William Turnbull Jr speaks of its environment on Monterey Bay.
Tatum Beach front Dwelling is section of a modest group of residences on Pot Tummy Beach that is accessed through a coastal forest near Aptos town. The easy a few-storey structure is clad in weathered wooden, with an angled, wood inside total of glazed spaces and exciting nooks.
Turnbull Jr was a Bay Place architect recognised for his web page-delicate patterns and use of uncooked elements. He developed the 4-bedroom home in 1972 for Frank and Barbara Tatum as a holiday home and won Architectural Record’s Household of the Calendar year award.
The seaside household has residing rooms ‘saddle-bagged’ to the entrance, non-public quarters in its major construction, and a wood deck adjoining the sandy seashore. Coastal foliage and tree-protected cliffs stand at the rear of the Santa Cruz County home, which is inquiring $4.975m by way of Architecture For Sale.
In its dazzling double-peak reception space, there is comprehensive glazing, broad sea views and a cosy eating space, although a library nook – with a sloping, corrugated ceiling that emits diffused lights – is designed into the break up staircase enclosure.
