Today we would love to present to you this incredibly quaint weekend residence of the renowned architect Gustave Carlson. This house situated in Sonoma, the heart of wine country was designed by him in 2004 and shows the true reflection of his relaxed Californian style with a touch of Nordic simplicity (his Swedish genes coming through). With the help of his wife Caroline Seckinger who is an artist this idea of his was turned into reality. The new structure is about 2400 square feet and the house is basically a big rectangular floor plan with open kitchen and this great family room. With bedrooms leading off the hallway of the house. Beautifully designed so that all rooms open on to the wrap around veranda. The white structure is an adjacent art studio for Caroline and also connects to the veranda. There is a Pool and lawn and as you can see the property is surrounded by vineyards and in the spring, wild mustard fields giving the feeling of being cut off from the world. While the exteriors fit with the vernacular architecture of rural Sonoma County. The interior decoration is a reflection on their tight family life, light filled and filled with modern pieces and personal touches chosen with care and all put together to make it a unique family home to be proud of.
