The 3200-sq-ft house is larger than it looks, with a long passage running from the front entry, revealing a sheltered patio and the main living areas.

The double-sided chimney has a grill in the dining area, plus the kitchen retains its Mid-Century vibe with a door and a pass-through.

Set away from the main house, the pool and 1-bath pool house share the same open mountain view. Plus there’s a great outdoor shower.
