Architecture Lodging Travel


Designed by John Funk in the 1950s, the Kent Woodlands House has been updated for modern midcentury enthusiasts. The single-level, four-bedroom dwelling has been meticulously restored to maintain the architectural integrity of the original design — going as far as to dig up the original architectural and landscaping plans in library archives as a reference to match finishes and fixture for the added bath. The classic open floor plan flows seamlessly to the private outdoor courtyard and swimming pool, while floor-to-ceiling glazing fills living spaces with natural light. Located on a mountain top, the one-acre property is afforded sweeping views of northern California, including direct vistas of Mount Tamalpais
