This artistic estate in Healdsburg was designed by Jim McCalligan, a Santa Rosa-based architect who has an extensive portfolio of both contemporary and modern homes. This house can be found on his site here, and if you take a moment to peruse the rest of his work, you’ll see that his firm has made a mark all throughout Sonoma County.

I think it has a lot of influence from Mies van der Rohe with the unexpected angles of Le Corbusier (Charles-Édouard Jeanneret) thrown in which – in not-art-speak – just means it’s a good mix of linear and modern (modern being 1920s to early 1960s). McCalligan has referenced Mondrian when explaining the windows in some of his other houses, so I can’t be too far off. If you’re looking for a house that has an unending number of interesting points to bring up in casual conversation, this is the home.

Besides all of that, this house has all the luxury additions you’d expect in a high-end house: granite countertops in the kitchen, quartz in the bathroom, gardens that include a hobby vineyard, fruit orchard, and oak forest. Oh, and in case you forgot that we’re in Healdsburg, there’s a wine cellar that holds approximately 300 bottles of wine and includes a custom-built wine-tasting table and chairs, and special refrigeration.
