For a young family from Boston just arriving in Sebastopol, California, architect Amy A. Alper had the unique challenge of developing a house that felt like home but could still be flexible and evolve over time as the family’s needs change. A fully curated and formal interior didn’t work for homeowners with two young children, so she developed a home with a clean architectural backdrop, numerous adaptable spaces, and plenty of room to grow.

Having purchased one of the last parcels within city limits, the clients had the opportunity to build a home with stunning views of the town and mountains as well as access to everything that Sebastopol has to offer. What they got was a modern design that makes the most of its environment while keeping future possibilities for transformation open. Tour the unique home here.

  • Set on one of the last available parcels within city limits, the 2,250-square-foot home is biking distance to downtown Sebastopol and walking distance to schools. Alper placed the main level of the home on the property’s “sweet spot” where the views of the nearby mountains and city were optimized.
