The Sunlight Residence in from features technological details designed to make life simpler.

One tour through this modern, Baldwin Vista home and we’re sure just about any Angeleno will fall in love — automatically. Why automatically, you ask? Because the Sunlight Residence offers complete through a wireless network that lets the homeowner control every last detail from the convenient touch-screen of their iPad. How’s that for high-tech living?

Proto Homes, a home builder in Southern California, recently completed what they are calling the Sunlight Residence because of it’s location on Sunlight Place. However, the name also aptly describes the home which is light, open and full of life.

This single-family residence sits on a knoll overlooking Century City, the Hollywood Hills, Baldwin Hills and everything in between. Just five minutes from Culver City, the house on Sunlight Place is a modern escape from the day-to-day worries of life in the city, tucked away in the peaceful neighborhood of Baldwin Vista.

The oversize living and dining area has the feeling of a tree house and can be both a small intimate space for meals, but also transform into a larger open venue for entertaining larger groups.

The back sliding door opens out onto the back patio, adding another 400 sq. ft of useable space. The home sits to one side of the lot, allowing for a large yard and private landscaped space for playing, relaxing and gardening.

As mentioned above, the Sunlight Residence is a tech-rich environment where a complete, wireless mesh network has harnessed all the home’s systems into one simple, accessible iDevice that can be used anywhere. Homeowners can control audio/visual systems, indoor climate, security/cameras, and even the fireplace from an iPad in the living room or a smart phone at JFK airport.

Proto Homes offers a suite of modern residential homes that all bear the same fundamential Proto DNA and are designed to make life simpler. “Smart design shouldn’t be reserved only for cars or phones,” explains the company on their website. “Each Proto Home™ is a balance of form and function.”

    Lovin the look! I was ranting about light wash denim at the beigning of spring, trying to find a dope selvage pair that weren’t too contrived. I was loving the ones Our Legacy did last spring and Rag&Bone did some nice ones too (although a little too stone washed for me.) The Baldwin may just be the answer though. Good work! On a side note: Look at you muggin’ for the camera. You will now be forever recognized. There’s no more hiding! ha!
