Located on the coast just south of San Francisco, this three bedroom, four bathrooms home is made of four elements: steel, glass, Peruvian hardwood, and aggregated cement. The Montara home at 330 13th Street, with its panoramic views, was designed by award-winning Anderson Anderson Architecture to maximize natural daylight inside the home and provide a warm environment to savor the refreshing coastal climate.

To minimize the use of resources and the carbon footprint, the home was built from three primary materials – concrete, glass and sustainably harvested Peruvian redwood. The results are remarkable; a functional yet eco-friendly home, which includes an impressive photovoltaic and solar water heating with natural gas back up system cleverly concealed on the roof to provide dual sources hot water and heating for the home.

Strategically placed windows and skylights draw in the sun and glass walls around outdoor living areas create a natural buffer zone encircling the house. The 3,250 square foot home offers four bedrooms and four bathrooms on a 6,000 square foot southwest facing lot that provides excellent exposure for passive solar heating. The property also includes a 100 square foot tool shed worthy of the best do-it-yourselfer.

When the home was built in 2008, no expense was spared when it came to the core construction features, beginning with cast-in-place concrete, insulated concrete, and American Mold Guard Certified resistant treatment of all of the framing, floors and joists. Other features include a three-foot crawlspace with mold resistant coatings under the floors and below grade stem walls; a whole-house dehumidifier with a HEPA air filter; a 30-year hospital grade plumbing waste system; 1 ½” copper main supply lines for all of the bathrooms; and in-floor radiant heating to help stave off the region’s occasionally chilly climate.

The home also was constructed using a commercial grade electrical system with conduit and pulled wires; a home run A/V conduit system with future proof wiring; two layers of 1 1/8” plywood sub floor, compared to standard houses that typically use one layer of ¾” plywood; a 130 gallon solar water heater with radiant tie-in and 99% efficient gas back-up; a solar ready roof deck with built-in rack mount base; and a 10’x18’ cantilevered deck, just off kitchen, that is ideal for entertaining and taking in Montara’s stunning sunsets.

As impressive as the core construction is, the Montara home’s aesthetic touches are equally as inspiring. Exposed hand textured concrete and aggregate and custom milled Peruvian redwood and white mahogany woodwork and flooring throughout the home cultivate a sense of warmth and comfort. The elegant doors, windows, sidings and ceilings were custom crafted using Peruvian redwood. Floor to ceiling glass throughout the home offers panoramic ocean views, as does the 400 square foot roof deck, accessible via a custom built steel and glass stairway tower with glass treads and a glass bridge. Additional enhancements include 2 ½” thick floors to ceiling doors; offset pivot wood and glass entry and patio doors; and a beautiful custom wood ceiling with ½” shadow lines.

Cabinets include a soft closing feature. The appliances are covered with custom white mahogany doors that augment the stainless steel counter tops and hood enclosure. A sub-zero refrigerator headlines a menu of notable appliances and fixtures, including: a Thermador electric oven; Blue Star 22k BTU commercial grade range with built-in barbecue and six burners; Kitchen-Aid trash compactor; Miele dishwasher; 1,200 CFM dual blower Vent-A-Hood; two Blano sinks, including one sink that is custom integrated into the stainless steel island top; two Insinkerator garbage disposals; and AXOR Italian designed faucets.

Four bathrooms are adorned with white-Carrera slab marble floors, 24” wide white mahogany slab counter tops, custom white mahogany cabinets, Lacava Italian made fixtures, and Toto toilets with the soft close feature.

Recessed lighting and a custom designed MIRO brand lighting control system with programmable RF switches provides warmth and clarity throughout the home, and a whole house central vacuum system helps keep the home inviting and clean.

Privacy was clearly on the minds of the architects of the Montara home, as evidenced by the white laminate glass on the entire east side of the house and a motorized roller shade in the master bedroom. Comfort and style were clearly on their minds when they designed the cast-in-concrete, wireless controlled modern gas fire-ribbon fireplace and the custom living room glass wall, 15 feet tall by 35 feet long, cleverly suspended from the ceiling.
