Having a place like the 'Summerhill' Residence to escape to after the grind of a long work week would be simply heavenly, especially since it's so secluded from everything. This weekend retreat is located in Kenwood, an area near the Sonoma Valley in California and was designed by the architectural firm Edmonds and Lee Architects.
Calling the Summerhill Residence a weekend getaway seems like a bit of a stretch considering its 4,000 square feet of living space, but nonetheless the lucky San Francisco couple who live here use it as a break from the city during their off days. Wouldn't it be nice?
Implications - Just as this home embraces the outdoors with a timbered exterior and substantial surrounding views of the hillsides in Sonoma Valley, its owners have come to embrace the connection to nature it provides them with. While many people aren't fortunate enough to own eco-escapes like this one, companies who products products that allow consumers to connect to nature will continue to be popular, as a cost-effective alternative.
