Split Rock Ranch

For a young family who sought such a weekend retreat, the remote location of this 30-acre lakeside ranch property became dream come true. Purchased in 2005, KAA Design began to master plan the property for homesteads, a vineyard, a barn structure, boathouse, and several other amenities.

Longfellow Drive

The modern rustic sensibility encourages flow and provides multiple transitional spaces between indoor and outdoor.  Materials were chosen to promote the the natural setting and timeless character and include colored board-formed concrete walls, board and batten painted wood siding, standing-seam zinc roofing, and indigenous trees and landscaping. 

Tower Grove Drive

Situated on a hillside property on a southern flank of the Santa Monica Mountains, Tower Grove rises high above to capture breathtaking and privileged views of Los Angeles and the Pacific Ocean beyond.
