Colorful but Elegant…
Built in Inverness, CA by a famous ecological architect, Sim Van der Ryn, rests a beautiful and comfortable retreat home made of wood. This 4000 square foot 3 bedroom, 4 bath lodge sits on several sunny acres, and is decorated with lots of color (including the natural wood) to be most elegant and inviting. Take a look and see for yourself!
Designed and built in the 1970s by renowned ecological architect and author Sim Van der Ryn and renovated in the 1990s, the Eco Refuge’s 4,000-square-foot, three-story house—a traditional pole barn with attached Japanese-style pavilion—includes five bedrooms and four baths, along with additional, informal sleeping areas. The main house has 3 bedrooms, one on each level. The ground floor bedroom is nice and dark and tucked away, with the feel of a library. It features a Queen bed, connected bathroom with shower. The second level bedroom also features a Queen bed, from which you can look out the window, across the property to the treeline. Along with being Wi-Fi equipped, each room displays Van der Ryn’s own paintings and other art collected over 40 years, and the house includes his personal multi-thousand-volume architecture and ecology book collection.
