homes appear long and even at times boring; on the inside, however,

Take this four-bedroom, three-bath in Sacramento, California—a
home highlighted in the Sacramento Bee in 1974. The exterior looks
inviting, but inside the 3,298 square foot structure is where this
home really shines. The focal point is a circular “Roman”
atrium that functions as a central cathedral-ceiling courtyard with
cement floors. Instead of a traditional Roman pool to catch rain
water, the original owners installed a sunken hot tub and the main
living room, dining room, and kitchen all surround it.
The atrium’s large windows at either end flood the interior
with light and the bedrooms all have sliding glass doors that
provide access to the surrounding deck and garden. The home also
boasts a koi pond, outdoor shower, mature redwood grove, and zoned
high-efficiency heating and air.
