Serenity in the Hills24.10.11
Owners of the Summer Hill Furniture company, Don and Rela Gleason, partnered with McAlpine Tankersley to create this incredibly serene home in Napa Valley. A rustic but elegant setting, the design style follows the modern philosophy that less is more. Architectural details, steel windows, antique and newly customized furnishings fall on a white canvas, highlighting their sophisticated details. The home is a vast retreat with three pavilions that are joined by breeze ways. With all it's space, they comprised a plan to keep the structure only one room deep when possible. Which not only allows for incredible light, but also keeps the spaces quaint. The master bath, is a pavilion in itself. What it lacks in a quaint and private retreat, it makes up for in a breathtaking elegant escape.
