A modern day concrete fortress near the newly celebrated wine region of Tehachapi, less than a 2 hr. drive outside Los Angeles. The residence is set on a promontory at the base of Tomo Khani State Historic Park and provides stunning views over the 80 acres and the canyon beyond . The unique modern compound includes a 4000 SF.(apx) main house with atrium, a 2600 SF.(apx) professional artist studio, and a 6-stall breezeway horse barn. The construction and interior design were completed in 2003 by Carl Day, AIA, architect. The 3 levels of interior spaces are all about comfort & design, with extra large windows and doors, soaring ceilings, fine wood cabinetry, beautiful skylights and natural stone fireplaces. The unique fortress design provides the ultimate in privacy and self-containment, complete with solar panels, water well, and concrete walls with custom metal shutters for fire protection. The 80 acres are very usable, gently rolling and level areas, offering endless possibilities.
