Artist Clay Walker created for himself a unique retreat in Escondido, California. The site was chosen for its 360 degree breathtaking views and expands over almost eight acres.

The property includes a three bedroom main house, one bedroom guest house and a detached office.

From the approach, the sculptural wall both protects and beckons you to visit and a 21 foot glass entry hall acts as an anteroom to the main house. The area was designed as a perfect place to display art and makes for a soft entrance into the home.

As an artist, Mr. Walker knew that the best art is in nature itself. Walls of glass allow for views far off in each direction, each one just a bit different than the last. Light is in abundance, walls and rooms awash with it.

Remodeled just a few months ago, the owner took great strides to keep the integrity of the original vision and yet brought about all the modern conveniences buyers are looking for.

With antique Italian stone floors, granite solid surfaces that mirror the natural stone that is its bedrock, new faucets, fixtures, hand carved doors, secret sleeping lofts and soft window finishes, the home is designed to bask in the glow in beauty of its surroundings.

This home is listed for $1.3 million with Willis Allen Real Estate and is showcased by Luxury Portfolio.
