Atascadero, California.

This 4,900 square foot custom contemporary residence sits on the edge of the hill with over 80 windows overlooking and enjoying the views of the City of Atascadero, California. This home offers a massive entry that enters at a mid-level with a winding stair up to private rooms and sweeping stairs bringing you down to the entertaining areas with views beyond and out to the countryside.
Each room affords a spectacular view. This particular residence was also designed to allow and utilize significant amounts of natural light to enter. A solar system and back-up generator system provides power for the entire residence, and the lower level consists of a guest suite with an adjacent home theater and exercise room.

We chose Gary Harcourt to design our home after a fruitless search for existing homes. We have a unique piece of hilly land with the building lot in the midst of an oak forest.

Gary did an unbelievable job of placing the home on the land. When people see it, they comment that it looks like the home has been there ‘forever’ due to the placement in the trees, though it’s only been 10 years.

The interior design was very collaborative and working against a budget. Gary was able to accurately cost out the options we were considering in a way that made it possible to make the best decisions for our family and our wallet.

We love our home and visitors always comment on the unique beauty and livability of our home. We highly recommend Gary Harcourt to anyone considering his services.
