This Hillside Home's open floor plan, high ceilings, and generously proportioned windows create a sense of spaciousness that elegantly blends the outside and inside spaces together. Located the picturesque Humbler Valley neighborhood, the house was constructed upon a former foundation to not disturb the natural ravine or number of trees located on the property. Homeowners are able to take in the views from anywhere in the home, and a Control4 technology package gives the home an intelligent design without any clutter.

Elegant entryway complete with automated audio distribution and in-ceiling speakers, connected lighting design, video intercom and touch screen, zoned security system with access in every room, and a custom home network.

Modern living room with personalized lighting and audio design, Control4 system voice control and preset switch scenes, touch screen intercom station, and HVAC system control throughout the whole home.

Inviting dining area with in-ceiling speakers, a connected multi-zoned audio/video entertainment system, lighting control, touch screen intercom station, and automated open fireplace.

Control4 has become a staple in all of Barroso Homes’ builds. We want to stand out. We want to be at the forefront of what technology has to offer. And we want to keep thinking outside of the box.

– Rose Barroso, Builder & Designer
