This compact three-level home occupies a shallow clearing on a small site, bordered by a busy thoroughfare to the south and 20 foot tall lava bluff to the rear. Arrival to the home is via a concrete stair nestled among boulders, leading to a protected grotto-like rear patio space between the home and the rock wall behind. This shaded patio provides a welcome counterpoint to the sunny roof deck found on the third level above.
