The Frame House

This unique residence is the final phase of a residential compound that also includes an award-winning trio of guest houses, a pool and multiple outbuildings, all perched atop a knoll with expansive views of the surrounding hills. The lean, modern structure, composed primarily of concrete construction, is a feat of teamwork and precision engineering and craftsmanship. Signature Homes collaborated with Marin-based Partners Contracting – specialists in concrete construction – to achieve the challenging design.

The Ridge Guest House

This guest house -- the recipient of a 2019 AIA Honor Award -- was the first phase of a compound that also includes a main house, pool and multiple outbuildings, all perched atop a knoll with expansive views of the surrounding hills. Constructed entirely of concrete, the guest house consists of three separate guest accommodations collected under a continuous, multi-gabled roof, which provides a striking silhouette when seen from the adjacent house and pool -- much like a contemporary sculpture set within the landscape.

Chalk Hill Lake Estate

This wooded estate, set on a secluded woodland property on Chalk Hill in Sonoma County, was designed and built as a wine country retreat for a dynamic and creative couple from Southern California – a real estate agent who comes from a design and construction background, and was intimately involved in the design and construction process, and his partner, a chiropractor with the green thumb and was responsible for the extensive landscape and vegetable garden.

Sonoma Craftsman Style Estate

Set in Sonoma, this estate is surrounded by trees, with views to the San Francisco Bay. The site consists of three individual parcels that together form a retreat for a young family. The first parcel houses the main ranch estate, a guest house sits on its own parcel and the third parcel remains undeveloped. The 8,000-square-foot, craftsman-style estate, completed in 2016, was the first collaboration between Wade Design Architects and Nordby Signature Homes.

Contemporary Mediterranean Residence

The full-scale renovation of this 6,025-square-foot home originally built in 2013 took the structure down to the bare studs to transform a dark, visually cluttered home into a contemporary, light-filled residence. The home, which faces south toward Mt. Tamalpais with expansive views overlooking Sonoma and the San Francisco Bay, now lives up to its spectacular site and views.

Old World Tuscan Residence

This project, completed in 2013, was Nordby Signature Homes’ first collaboration with Taylor Lombardo Architects. Set within Mayacama, a private golf and residential community in the hills of the northern Sonoma Valley, the home’s traditional Tuscan design follows the community’s design guidelines. Designed for a couple retiring to the wine country from Hillsborough, the home captures views of the Mayacama Golf Course and the adjacent hills.

The structures were designed and built over the period of a decade.

Secluded Modern Cabin

Set on a heavily wooded 4-acre site in the town of Ross, surrounded by a majestic grove of Redwoods, this home has the air of a very sophisticated campsite in the woods. The goal for the design was to bring the woods into the interior, creating a deeply immersive woodland lifestyle carried out with meticulous care.

Rustic Barn Style Estate

This rustic farmhouse compound designed by local architect James McCalligan is located on 95 acres just outside the small enclave of Penngrove but feels as though it is miles from civilization. Set amid the oaks, grasses and rock outcroppings characteristic of the Northern California woodland landscape, the estate is designed to feel as if it had existed on the land for generations.

Craftsman Home in the Park

This 4,000-square-foot craftsman home sits on a street-to-street lot near the small town of Ross in Marin County – a site so scenic that neighbors suggested turning it into a park. To honor the beauty of the site, and acknowledge the wishes of their neighbors, the owners decided to build “a home in the park.” Signature Homes orchestrated the team in a highly organized effort to successfully complete this detailed, traditionally-constructed home within the town’s strict 18-month construction window.
