David Kensington: Mayhem Ranch
Designer David Kensington shows us inside his new Mayhem Ranch, a contemporary take on American farmhouse vernacular. The country estate, located in Healdsburg, CA, encompasses a 7,000 square foot main house, three guest houses, saltwater pool, two hot tubs, a pool house with outdoor dining, outdoor kitchen and bocce court on 10 acres surrounded by 12 acres of vineyards.
The four homes were designed with simple board and batten cedar siding with structural brackets and beams set within deeply recessed gables and eaves. All material was sourced locally and the estate is self-sufficient and off the grid using well water, septic and solar power.
Modern touches include a Crestron whole house integration system, which gives the ability to control everything in the home from lighting, temperature, music and security with touch screens in rooms or remotely from mobile devices.
