Fans of architect Jerry Lomax’s modernist style may delight in this AIA award-winning design set on Laureles Grade with unobstructed views over the Pastures of Heaven towards Mount Toro and the distant farms of the Salinas Valley. A protégé of Craig Ellwood, Lomax played a role in the design of several of Ellwood’s acclaimed Case Study Houses. He designed many homes throughout the Monterey area until his death in 2014. This 3,170 square-foot minimalist “living sculpture” carries on the Lomax architectural tradition with his signature clarity of form and poetic design sensitivities.
Sited on 2.47 acres, the residence was first completed in 1999 and has been maintained and updated throughout the decades. The interiors beautifully combine functionality with minimal finishes. Notable features include a custom Bulthaup kitchen, raised vegetable beds, hot tub, playground, multiple balconies, and a guest house with full kitchen and laundry. Four bedrooms and four full baths complete the home. Seamless passage between indoor and outdoor living spaces connect to the breathtaking Carmel Valley landscape beyond. Journeying through each space, inside to out, puts one in rare touch with the visionary imagination of Lomax himself and the nature that exists right in front of us.
Just a short drive to wine tastings in The Village and world-class dining and shopping in Carmel and Pebble Beach, this enduring masterpiece is listed by Tim Allen of Coldwell Banker Realty, Carmel By-the-Sea/Junipero for $2,650,000.
