Pennsylvania Stone Farmhouse in Malibu, CA
Beverly Hills based clients commissioned a vacation home for their family in Malibu, CA. Together with world renowned interior designer John Cottrell, we conceived a 10,000 sq. ft. Pennsylvania Stone Farm House. The stone was quarried from the Midwest and is complemented by a steep French slate roof. The site is situated on a 2 1/2 acre bluff with a panoramic view stretching from Paradise Cove to Catalina Island. This resplendent retreat immediately relaxes the mind and body as one is lead from the circular drive court through an arched portico with paneled wood gates into a quiet lawned courtyard. The garden and reflective lap pool and spa are sheltered from harsh elements by the two wings of the house. A glass French lite Dutch entrance door is discretely located at the end of an outdoor colonnade.

What Houzzers are commenting on:
I like this style door. The two outside doors seem to be fixed while the inner three fold back onto the two fixed to open the space. These seem less obtrusive than one big accordion-style door. I also like that on a daily basis we would have the option of going in and out of one standard door instead of having to operate a sliding door.
