The classic open plan of Mid-Century houses may have been a shock in the past, but it’s the way many of us want to live today. All of the main entertaining spaces flow together, from the living and dining rooms out onto terraces to the library and a kitchen/family room that opens to the secluded, walled pool.

What We Love: The simple palette of materials used consistently, throughout the the house; the same slate flooring used inside extends to the terraces and pool.
