A refined modernist masterpiece, the Shed House has earned well-deserved recognition for its sleek mid-century Palm Springs aesthetic and its exceptional use of absolutely contemporary materials and design. Named for its gently-sloping roof line, the T-shaped residence sits gracefully on a gated parcel of over 1.2 acres at the end of a cul-de-sac on a private road, where it commands sweeping views of the ocean, Point Dume, and Paradise Cove.

Custom designed by Michael Boyd and Laurel Broughton, the home was envisioned as a setting for art and sculpture, indoor-outdoor entertaining, and a lifestyle of tranquil comfort. The open layout provides an east-west entertainment axis with expansive, vaulted spaces and walls of glass opening to the pool deck for convivial gatherings, while assuring privacy to bedrooms located in separate wings.

At the front of the house is a large circular drive, and an approach with beautiful tropical landscaping that features a quiet covered patio. The main living area is a gorgeous pool- and ocean-view living-family-dining great room with high, custom-finished, parchment-glazed maple ceilings, wraparound walls of glass, and custom engineered and stained French oak wide-plank floorboards over a layer of cork for added quiet and comfort. A free-standing double-sided fireplace clad in shimmering, hand-made Heath Ceramic tiles faces the living room and the covered patio at the front of the house. Beneath a large skylight, the top-quality Miele custom kitchen expands from the spacious dining area, with a huge Carrara marble-topped island, generous counter space and custom cabinets, and a large storage pantry.

In its own wing, the primary suite, complete with a walk-in closet, has soaring silver-gray stained maple ceilings and a wall of glass opening directly to the pool deck and patio. The dual-sided primary bath also has sliding glass doors to the backyard. On the opposite side of the home’s entrance, another hallway leads to two serene en-suite bedrooms, one opening to the backyard, the other opening to a private terrace on the side of the house.

The compound has two separate guest accommodations. A detached guest house, which could easily serve as a studio, gym, office, or theater, has a kitchenette and en-suite bath. A second guest house is attached to the garage, where it has a kitchenette and two bedrooms with separate entrances and a locking door between. The two-car garage, with a custom-built disappearing garage door, has laundry facilities, room for a golf cart, and abundant storage space.

The ocean-view backyard features a pool with an artful water feature and expansive entertaining deck, a putting green, bocce court, a large dining and barbecue area, a nursery, and meandering pathway to scenic lounging areas surrounded by picturesque lighted and irrigated landscaping.

Additional features include a wine cellar, two Tesla Power Walls, commercial grade anodized aluminum glass doors, security system, solar power, a Japanese cedar hot tub, Heath Ceramics in all baths, hidden floor-to-ceiling roller blinds, museum reveal floor trim, and deeded access to the beach and golf cart parking at Escondido Beach. A remarkable achievement in elegant simplicity and livable beauty.
