“The county’s shelter-in-place guidelines saved us,” Liggatt said. The new regulations require a 100-foot buffer fireproof landscaping around the home. The project defines current thinking in topend custom home building in Southern California. Here are a few examples: — The design team used real stone on the crescent-shaped compound (convex side facing the vista). Called Farmer’s Ledge stone from Colorado, it is dry-stacked throughout the project, keeping golden stucco walls to a minimum. — The windows have deep setbacks. There’s a stone lintel header above the casement windows. The entry and main window have elongated arches like many countryside churches in Spain and Italy. Stairs and passageways RIGHT and opposite: Travertine-faced tub in master bath commands magnificent views to the east and southwest. Iron wall sconces and amber candles are custom made. ABOVE: Designer Maria Barry’s attention to detail is evident throughout the house. San Diego Home/Garden Lifestyles November 2008
