With tapered exterior columns and exposed interior beams, this home’s design emphasizes its Craftsman roots

San Jose Craftsman

This new two-story Craftsman home located in the Cambrian neighborhood of San Jose features a two-car garage with a porch-style front patio. Tapered columns with a stone base establish a consistent rhythm between the garage and porch. At the rear of the home, a south-facing second floor balcony orients towards a view of the Santa Cruz mountains and sits atop a spacious and inviting patio below, perfect for hosting and entertaining.

This design features an abundance of natural light throughout the day, thanks to its copious glazing and south facing backyard. At the kitchen nook, windows wrap around 3 sides, allowing great views into the backyard.

From the wooden floors to the carefully detailed wall paneling and coffered ceilings, the refined interior of the home features a high level of attention to detail. In key areas of the home, stained wooden ceiling beams further enhance the Craftsman style.

This home has many show-stopping elements, including a grand fireplace that captures the eye when entering the living room and a gracious staircase leading to a loft study which overlooks the airy double height living room.
