This northern California home unfurls across the forest floor as a series of interconnected pavilions

A sequence of monochrome pavilions connect at this intimate forest home in California, designed by Berkley architect Douglas Burnham to tread lightly on its natural setting.

The Forest Home sits on a 40-acre estate near Healdsburg and comprises a cluster of angular, interconnected cabins that unfurl as a series of private and public indoor/outdoor spaces. At the heart of the California dwelling is a communal kitchen and living room housed inside a central ‘lodge’ wrapped in warm cedar cladding – a rustic contrast to its high-end finishes and modern furniture.

Glass doors slide back onto a large, elevated deck that doubles as an outdoor living room in warmer months and a viewing platform above the forest floor, which is home to wild boars and other animals.

Three bedrooms are housed in individual, angular cabins with their own private decks and bathrooms. The principal cabin features a wood-burning stove and freestanding tub with views across the madrone from its rose-tinted windows.

Guest accommodation is located in the ‘bunk house’ which sleeps six in nooks embedded in the wall, a 42ft swimming pool, hot tub and cold plunge pool.

The Forest home is located in Sonoma wine country and is offered for sale via Sotheby’s International Realty – San Francisco Brokerage for $3.5m.
