Recently completed, featuring designer furnishings and contemporary artwork, and on the market for $44.8 million, Noble’s vision combines state-of-the-art fixtures and fittings with expert craftsmanship and a curated collection of organic elements. Situated high on the lot to maximize lush mountain views across the valley, the home is clad in reclaimed wood with massive steel-framed windows and doors that include a massive front door that soars more than 25 feet.

The black brass staircase in the foyer has a leather-wrapped handrail. The double-height living room, overlooked by a curved gallery on the second floor, has an expansive glass wall that fills the room with sunlight. The dining room is lined from floor to ceiling with oak panels split by thin strips of copper. Throughout, there are marble-lined doorways and designer light switches, along with undulating walls of matching walnut panels with veining in several rooms, including one of the two dressing rooms and the master bedroom suite.
The kitchen is the epitome of culinary elegance, with two custom-made islands, one wrapped in fluted copper panels and the other made entirely of marble, including the drawer and cabinet fronts. A cantilever snack bar adds an exclamation point to the bold design, while a hidden door conceals an all-stainless steel catering kitchen that’s useful for hosting large events and preparing messy recipes. Nearby, floor-to-ceiling windows line a cozy dining space, and the family room has a gray flannel marble fireplace flanked by light-filled bookshelves.

A sprawling guest suite on the main floor offers a spacious lounge, office area and two walk-in closets for overnight accommodation, while one of the three guest or family bedrooms upstairs is a double with a raised lounge and adjoining office.
