The gorgeous Alley One Residence in California


Named Alley One Residence, this gorgeous home placed in Healdsburg, California was creatively transformed from an old cottage into a contemporary private family residence.
Envisioned by architect Amy Alper, the Alley One Residence presents an exciting interior design that is filled with light and easy to open to the outdoors.

Description from the architect:

A dilapidated cottage located on a charming alley in Healdsburg captured the imagination of a couple moving from Boston. With an eye toward reuse of framing and foundation, a new two bedroom house was reborn. The entry area (set up as a lounge but easily converted to a dining area) blurs the line between inside and out with a concrete floor that runs right out to the rear patio. Defined by the interplay of rooflines and floor levels, the living areas, kitchen, front patio and fire pit are defined yet are open to each other. The bedrooms, while intimate, benefits from design to minimize hallways. Also intimate but luxurious is the spa-like master bath. All rooms enjoy a cross breeze and are awash in natural light.
