Imposing Old Redwoods Surround this Modern Vacation Home in California

The coastal forests of Northern California with their amazing redwood trees are a natural wonder that attract tourists from all across the globe. It is in this stunning natural landscape that one finds the inviting and contemporary Loewinger Residence designed by Shevi Loewinger with the help of architect Ravit Kaplan. This beautiful vacation rental home is both classic and modern in its demeanor as its wooden exterior gives way to a contemporary interior. The design is essentially a blend of the traditional holiday cabin and the modern urban home; bringing together the best of the two contrasting structures.

It is a lot with a giant redwood in the rear yard and a fabulous forest all around in the idyllic village of Guerneville that is the setting for this unique holiday home. Cedar plays a major role in shaping the exterior of the house and its presence lends warmth, uniqueness and brings a traditional vibe to the retreat. Step inside and a neutral color palette using gray, white and black completely alters the visual and breezy modern ergonomics take over.
