Overlooking a scenic valley in Sonoma County is a 13 acre wooded property atop a steep hill near Healdsburg.  This is the setting for a new, off-grid fire-resistant house. Characterized by a series of chimneys that appear as both additive and subtractive elements that anchor the corner transitions and flank the wrap around porch, this house nestles into the top of the hill, fostering expansive west-ward views of the vineyard valley below.  Deep porches promote an indoor-outdoor lifestyle while providing shade from the summer sun. Located in the Wildland-Urban Interface fire zone, this house uses fire resistive materials and mitigation strategies.
