Mr. and Mrs. Bill Canning Residence, Sonora


Canning Residence

The Canning’s ambitious home project expanded a large, old church to create a luxurious Italianate villa.  The landscape design sought to capture both the Italian and the local Gold Rush Era vernacular.  Note the elevated swimming pool and deck allowing direct access from the second floor living area.  Glass blocks in the pool sides and deck bring light to the lower floor, creating a striking accent.
