If you are an architectural enthusiast then the exterior of this modern glass house in Carmel Valley may remind me you of Philip Johnson’s Glass House house in Connecticut, which was actually inspired by the Farnsworth House in Illinois designed by architect Mies van der Rohe. However, this particular glass home in Carmel Valley was designed by Studio Schicketanz and is located in the upscale Tehama development. Tehama was the brainchild of Clint Eastwood, actor and former Mayor and City Councilperson of Carmel-By-the-Sea, California that is comprised of approximately 2,000 acres of land that he began purchasing over 30 years ago. This gated community consists of only 90 lots and a private golf course with membership “by invitation only”. Luckily, much of the land has been preserved in order to maintain the majestic scenery and vast open space ideally located just a few miles from the ocean. It looks like a peaceful paradise to call home.
On a side note: One of my first posts was inspired by the homes in Carmel. If you missed it, then you must check it out here.
