Out of Sites: Playing it Cool

In each of the estate’s structures, openings in the walls facilitate air circulation. Also affording comfort are the property’s calming views. The 9,200-square-foot main residence and the 3,500-square-foot, two-bedroom guest dwelling are nestled amid towering pines. Pale yellow Triana marble adds subtle luxury to bathrooms, including the main house’s master bath, where a corner sports Gordon Guillaumier’s Capri armchair in orange wool. The Triana marble-and-parota vanity is by Eduardo Santos. “We put acid on the marble for a texture more appropriate for the forest,” says Legorreta. The main pavilion’s master bedroom has a similarly neutral palette, though Legorreta’s signature bold colors do appear in the form of Toshiyuki Kita’s plum-wool-upholstered K10 Dodo armchair and a royal blue, hand-knotted wool rug.
