Casa Tierra offers breathtaking panoramic views from its two and a half-acre hillside setting. The property’s buildings feature charming balconies, a spacious pool and hot tub, and many private, covered seating areas. Indoors, Bobby’s aspirational yet attainable style is on display throughout the five bedroom/five and a half bathroom main house as well as the two casitas that include their own kitchens and bathrooms.

May 12-15, 2022, this hidden gem of an estate will be open to the public for tours during Modernism Week — May. Working with local designer and Hotelement founder Paula Oblen to reimagine the more than 5,000 square feet of living space with an eye toward hospitality, Berk and Oblen transformed this unique Spanish-style property into a world-class destination, with modern touches and an emphasis of Berk’s unique design style throughout.
