There is no doubt that architect Cliff May has made his mark on Southern California architecture. His California ranch-style homes are in almost every neighborhood. One of his most impressive designs is currently available in Rolling Hills, CA.
The gorgeous, modern California ranch-style architectural estate is approximately 14,374 square feet of luxurious living space. The owner states that more than $2 million was spent to remodel/upgrade the home in 2010, while staying true to its modern “California Ranch” architectural heritage. This one-of-a-kind property is situated on 4.19 acres of park-like grounds with panoramic city and ocean views, the home features a unique indoor pool with retractable roof and wet bar for a year-round use and North/South tennis court with large cabana. It is an entertainer’s paradise with an expansive living area that boasts distressed American walnut wood floors, dry sauna, gym, five fireplaces, skylight, cathedral ceilings with an oversized media room and full bar, wine cellar and gaming area. The gourmet kitchen features a commercial grade Wolf range and built-in subzero freezer/refrigeration units and built-in coolers. There is a detached guest quarters with full bath. It also features a built-in closed circuit camera security system and ample paved driveways with parking for up to 30 vehicles.
First and foremost, Cliff May homes are unique in their relationship to the outdoors. They are Californian, built for individuals who want to erase the lines between indoors and outdoors and embrace the spectacular Southern California climate. And in an environment where the sun shines 300 plus days a year and the average high temperature is 75 degrees, why would anyone want to live differently? It is not uncommon in Cliff May homes to find that every room in the house has a connection to the outdoors. Floor-to-ceiling glass takes the place of walls to bring light and nature in, creating a relationship to the outdoors that is as much a part of the home as the decor. This particularly rings true in the property that is available in Rolling Hills.
