Sited on two acres south of San Francisco, the Peninsula House merges traditional materials with modern design. The sprawling 12,00-square-foot estate, designed by Richard Beard, is formed by a series of stacked stone structures. The connected volumes create a collection of exterior courtyards including an expansive poolside terrace. A glass and steel entryway welcomes guests into a spacious interior where the stone facade meets a selection of limestone, wood, and plaster. The classic palette is complemented by a collection of contemporary furnishings and fixtures selected by Kelly Hohla. While the main living spaces occupy the ground floor, private rooms fill the remaining level. Around the exterior, the property also includes a putting green, water features, and cedar-clad pool house that serves as space for guests.
