This Sonoma property has been converted from a metal-working studio into a residence, and in the listing, it’s referred to as “…from foundry to fine art.”  Though the architecture was meant originally for a workspace, it’s been updated instead to include entertaining spaces with custom lighting, walls of glass to allow natural light in, custom concrete flooring and metal beams across high ceilings.

The newly designed kitchen that includes custom cabinetry, a Wolf oven, a Subzero fridge, a metal hood and stone countertops. The great room includes oversized glass doors which lead to a covered dining area, a patio for ping-pong, and an outdoor fireplace.

There are designer details and high-end finishes throughout this home, which include Venetian plaster walls, fixtures by Le Klint & Louis Poulsen and a roll-down metal door. The spiral staircase leads to a loft, which is currently used as a media room. The primary en suite bedroom features a custom fireplace, a new walk-in closet and a freshly remodeled spa-like bath.

There is an additional bedroom that has a fully remodeled bathroom with a double vanity and marble tile. There’s also a detached room with another full bathroom. The grounds have olive trees, grasses, cactus, fruit trees and flowers.
