Perched on a knoll above Hunter Creek at 4959’ elevation, this high desert site has 360 degree commanding views of the Reno lights and surrounding mountain views. Inspired by a Falcon in flight and classical music, this home celebrates flight through form and triumphal music through its curved art galleria. The living, bedroom and music areas organize off the galleria for cityscape view. A grand central hall celebrates opposing city and Sierra view with study loft above. The grand fireplace has see-through warmth to living and family room. The dining room captures Sierra sunsets. The pitched roofs flow upwards to the skyline views. The central hall is softened with an arched structure. The garage has a complimentary arched roof clerestory. The home is terraced into the desert with arching stone walls and native pastel landscape blending into the natural environment.
