Rancho Mineiro Featured in April 2007 California Home and Design

San Francisco, CA -- Rancho Mineiro, a BAR Architects' designed custom home, was featured in the April issue of California Home and Design highlighting the best of wine-country living.

Set on 60-acres the 6,000 square-foot residence, designed by architect and BAR partner Richard Beard, AIA, captures the essence of a vast Brazilian estancia while retaining a distinctly Californian sense of openness and warmth. Beard and project associate Lisa Victor sited the home to appear nestled into the hillside and "reveal itself through a sequence of experiences."

The result is a 6,000 square-foot home that finds a natural place within the landscape; interior details, furnishings and a palette of natural colors and textures give the home its own unique aesthetic in the Northern California wine country.
