Casa Esperanza

Santa Lucia Preserve Carmel Valley, CA

A modern-day retreat with old world sensibilities, this Carmel Valley hacienda minimizes impact on the land through thoughtful site design. Grading allowed the house to nestle into the land and preserve feature trees, and storm runoff is collected to percolate the land.

Arbors and shade trees provide passive solar cooling, while low-water, deer-tolerant native plantings uphold sustainability tenets and complement the home’s architecture.
