Today I had the pleasure of touring a fascinating contemporary home in Martis Camp that was designed by the award-winning Faulkner Architects. This 5-bedroom 5 bath contemporary Faulkner masterpiece in Martis Camp evokes modern design which harmoniously blends with the natural environment of the Martis Valley. It offers views of the Carson Range, Mt. Rose, and the Northstar ski resort. Contemporary purists will appreciate the minimalist design, use of sustainable materials, and superior craftsmanship that only Loverde Builders can deliver.
Faulkner and Loverde utilized sustainable materials in construction including site native stone, rusting corten steel, glass tile, stainless steel, and reclaimed redwood in order to create this enlightened retreat. Each well thought out room is designed to take advantage of this properties sunny exposure and expansive views thus ensuring a positive flow of Qi. This Zen-like home features southeast to southwest exposures allowing for sun-drenched mornings in the master suite, all day sun in the living areas, and wonderful evenings spent around the patio’s gas fireplace. From the well-placed skylights to the large south-facing picture windows, Faulkner’s design takes full advantage of the environment creating sun-filled rooms promoting a sense of wellness.
The living room has a wonderful southern exposure with views of the Northstar Ski Resort and features patio access, redwood ceilings, mesquite inlaid concrete floors, and a large native stone fireplace. This creates a comfortable space to gather with friends and family. The organic color palette utilized throughout the residence creates warm spaces designed to harmonize with the surrounding environment.
The chef’s kitchen is open to the living room and features a butler’s pantry, corten steel ceilings, slab countertops, clear birch cabinetry, and professional quality cabinet faced appliances. This masterfully designed kitchen is sure to be the center of activity when creating meals and entertaining guests and family.
This contemporary home has 5 luxurious bathrooms, all of which feature a similar contemporary design based around slab countertops, custom hand made stainless steel sinks, slab countertops, clear birch cabinetry, and custom showers adorned with stainless steel and glass tile reminiscent of art that you would see at the MoMA. The custom showers were my favorite aspect of the bathrooms as I loved the glass tile work and could feel the architect’s vision for creating a space to rejuvenate and refresh the soul.
One of the most original aspects of this home is the glass sky walk in the second floor hallway. This one of a kind feature is sure to take your breath away the first time you set foot on the open expanse! Your brain will have a hard time differentiating solid ground from open air! The sky walk not only serves as a built in art form but also allows light to penetrate from the skylights above to the art lined first floor hallway. This contemporary detail showcases Faulkner’s vision of creating naturally lighted spaces.
Whether you’re a contemporary purist, artist, or connoisseur of design and high end construction you will surely be impressed by this one of a kind masterpiece.
