Located in the Los Angeles foothills, this house evokes the great French Riviera tradition of uniting the heritage of Parisian maisons with their formal massing and classical details, and the warm character of Provence, to create a modern Mediterranean villa for a young family.

Walls of straw-colored plaster, golden French limestone trim, shuttered opening accents, and the classic Genoise eave and tile roof combine to bring the romance of Southern France to California.
