Glen Ellen Farmhouse Back And Pool 460

Glen Ellen Farmhouse

This interpretation of the wine country farmhouse includes board and batten siding, corrugated metal roofing and local stone veneer. The spacious interior opens to nature, permitting an indoor/outdoor lifestyle. Early 20th century San Francisco architect Bernard Maybeck is honored in some details, such as window frames and exposed rafters. Built on a slide plain along a creek, 67 40’ deep piers were needed to anchor the home into the slope. JMA also used piers to support the exercise building, but also to save the roots of a substantial live oak tree. To expedite the schedule, a 100’ long x 38’ high x 64’ wide tent was erected over the entire main house to facilitate work during the winter months. JMA also built the garage, pool and bocce court.
