8100 Fallen Leaf Way
With six bedrooms that wake up to full-on views of the Sierra Crest, this 7,175-square-foot modern masterpiece — a work of renowned architect Greg Faulkner — makes the best of a stunning setting. Throw in the fact that the west-facing veranda wraps around the home and is accessible from each bedroom and the story gets even better. Finally, to pull off a literal translation of “soaking in the view,” there’s a custom pool with built-in oversized spa, both surrounded by lawns, an entertainer’s dream patio, and that never-ending panorama of mountains, forests, big skies and brilliant sunsets. The 6-bedroom, 6.5 bathroom home’s exterior is a bold blend of metal and wood. At the top of the custom steel staircase is a great room that delivers an impressive reveal. To its left — commanding the same jaw-dropping view — is the kitchen and dining room. Tying these rooms together is an elegant, deftly angled cedar ceiling and floors of wide plank white oak framed by handsome edges made of flamed black granite. Further left is the master bedroom and bath, along with a room that works well as everything from an office to a library to a sunny yoga room. The master bedroom, like the great room and media room, includes an artistically designed fireplace. The bathroom’s oversized bath seems to levitate in this glass-walled room. At the other end of this home are a junior master suite, a guest bedroom, a nanny’s quarters, and an additional full laundry. Downstairs leads to a media room that faces the pool and includes a big screen tv, microwave, fridge and dishwasher. The next room down the hall can be either a gym or bedroom while the end of the hallway leads to a playful bunkroom that sleeps six and has immediate access to the deck, lawn, pool and spa.
As with all homes designed by Greg Faulkner, details never cease to amaze. Showers and counters make fine use of Caesarstone while panels are made of Shinnoki White Oak. Doors are solid and wide. The butler’s pantry tucked behind the main kitchen includes a sink, oven, dishwasher and built-in Gaggenau coffee machine while the main kitchen features the likes of Thermador, Sub-Zero, and Gaggenau. The wine cooler in the pantry is Perlick. Throughout the home is Lutron lighting and Zurmthor pendants. The pool has an electric cover and a heated perimeter mat that invites wintertime swims and snowclad vistas of Martis Camp below and the Pacific Crest beyond.
