Desert View was conceived around a central theme; when the close-in landscape is visually stunning, compose each window as a picture frame for that view. Each window. Every room. Hence, the irregular plan shapes. The house occupies a corner lot but is nestled into a hillside so that one cannot tell from the inside. The knife edge pool view to the mountains overlooks the street corner, with no visual impact. A Rumsey house is integrated into the site with great thought given to maximizing natural site amenities. Built in 2000.
