Dreamy Compound In Healdsburg, $3.5MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
High above Healdsburg’s legendary Dry Creek Valley and set on 40 acres wooded accessed by a dirt road lies this enchanted compound of freestanding structures for gathering, playing and sleeping.
Designed by Berkeley architect Daniel Burnham’s Envelope AD– an architecture and design firm well known for its sensitive, interactive public spaces– the property’s concept was based on a philosophy best described by this quote from their website “We design for activity… We intentionally create a flexible setup, spatially and programmatically, leaving room for a multiplicity of outcomes.” Instead of the typical monolithic Wine Country home, Burnham created a collection of spaces scattered intentionally in the native madrones like some ultimate family-friendly summer camp.
At top and below, the main gathering structure is a platform with multiple communal spaces for lounging, cooking and dining, all completely integrated with the outdoors. All the structures are set above the forest floor and incorporate existing trees into their decks.
One of the three sleeping structures. it’s hard to imagine a more idyllic spot for a good night’s sleep; each has a private bath. Plus there’s bunkhouse for kids and a pair of tent platforms for serious glamping.
