Carciofi and Jinglehyme Design
Living Green in the San Rafeal Hills
This warm and dramatic contemporary craftsman home has been completely reinvented with planet Earth in mind; utilizing dual-glazed energy-star windows, micro drip irrigation and low-flow fixtures. The Carciofi and Jinglehyme renovation makes ideal use of the terraced west-facing site. The interior design is fresh and current, modern lines and open spaces give way to the finer details of an earlier era. Rich hardwoods, simple hand-glazed tile, freestanding fixtures and well-crafted finish carpentry create a timeless and sophisticated environment.
The main level entry corridor with powder room leads to the commercial style kitchen, formal dining room and a spacious guest suite. Down a half flight of stairs is the main living area with fireplace and balcony, the master suite, and two additional bedrooms. At ground level the oversized garage and back yard is accessed from a private lane along the rear of the property.
