Written by Neil Charles / Photography by Andrew Kung Entertaining on a lavish scale. CHATHAM HILLS COUNTRY Located in Chatham Hills, Westfield's new upscale golf community, our featured residence is a custom build by Gradison Design-Build with design by A Lantz Design, a highly-regarded father and daughter team based at the Indiana Design Center. e home's style is described variously by the owner as "California Country" and "Rustic Elegance." e spacious, open-concept home occupies approximately 7,000 square feet atop a steeply sloping lot with views over woodland and the nearby golf course. To the rear of the house, three terraces with seating areas and a water feature descend from the screened-in living space, where the rugged Executive Blend stone fireplace and darkly stained beams provide thematic harmony with the home's interior. "e architectural design began outdoors with the terraced living areas, both screened and open air, which could be used three seasons of the year," explains Gradison Design-Build owner and co-founder—with his brother Mark—Joe Gradison. "We moved inside from there, using natural materials to reflect the outdoors and to continue the space for entertaining." Once inside, the rustic charm progresses through the flowing main floor, where the consistent color scheme and repeating motifs generate a sense of unity among the various designated spaces. "e interior design concept began with three pieces of art," explains designer Amanda Lantz. "ere is a painting of candle sticks above the fireplace in the living room by Ukrainian-born artist Valentin Popov that became the inspiration for the color scheme throughout the entire home." Purchased at the Long-Sharp Gallery in Indianapolis, the paintings were subsequently loaned to an exhibition of the artist's work before their installation in the home. 68
