An architect and heritage property that will be internationally renowned for all time. Designed with an absolute integration of the nobility of nature and the multi-needs function of modern life, this 3100sf, 4 bedroom with optional 5th bedroom, 4 full bathroom home is a “contemporary southwestern style home (in the words of the architects) includes an arbored entry courtyard, cabana, passively heated black-bottom pool and detached garage. A portion of the north edge of the building is embedded in the hillside, a decision that reduced heating and cooling needs by drawing on the Earth’s thermal mass to mediate the temperature.� This is the unique collaboration between function and nature referenced above that identifies the Hubbell architecture. Oriented to view Mount Kuchumaa, generous roof overhangs maximize solar heat gain during summer and allow low winter sun to passively heat the home. Ceilings are high with transom windows to take advantage of natural convection. Natural wood doors and windows and low-energy lighting are used through. The landscape incorporates low-water/maintenance native vegetation in stunning groupings. Straw-bale construction – baled, stacked and covered with plaster provide beauty and endurance with two-foot thick walls with excellent sound as well as temperature insulation. The lot is 118,483 sf. designed as a personal Eden and retreat with paths and natural grounds, yet only 30 minutes from San Diego. SEE SUPPLEMENT FOR MORE INFORMATION.
