The Hilltop House by Safdie Rabines:

“The home was designed to maximize the 360 degree views from its hilltop location, just north of San Diego. An open plan in the public areas of the home features four cascading levels of reverse butterfly roofs with clerestory windows to illuminate and ventilate. The stacked open beam ceilings delineate warm intimate spaces despite the nearly 10,000 square feet of space. Cantilever spans are supported by steel beams.

The house is sited and structurally engineered for energy efficiency.  The reverse roof slope drains off rising warm air through clerestories with the help of cool ocean cross breezes.  In winter, southern windows provide an abundance of passive solar heating.  On cloudy days, hydronic radiant floors powered by German made boilers efficiently heat from the bottom up.”

Kirstie Alley is one artist who had to fight very hard to maintain her career in Hollywood. She first appeared as Rebecca Howe, on “Cheers” in 1987. Then, in the 2000s she appeared rarely due to her weight problem. But, in 2011 she won 2nd place of “Dancing with the Stars”. After that, Alley launched organic weight loss product named Organic Liaison. But sales of this product were not too successful.

 

Kirstie Alley ever had interior design career in Los Angeles. Let’s take a look at her house in Isleboro, Maine. This house is now on market for $1.75 million. Originally, Alley’s house was priced $2.35 million. Then in 2011 the price dropped to $1.99 million. That was a pretty drastic decline in luxury home price.

 

Kirstie Alley’s house is really a luxurious cottage. This house measures 3,140 square feet. There are five bedrooms and four bathrooms. Alley’s house also has multiple fireplaces and wooden style kitchen. This house even has a dock and a private beach. Yes, Alley’s house is overlooking to ocean. We only can reach this house by ferry. What a spectacular house it! However, Alley’s house is very contrary to the Alley’s career. Just hopping Alley’s life was as beautiful as this house.
