Zahid Sardar, former architecture and design editor for the San Francisco Chronicle, pulled out all of his great friends and well developed contacts to produce a truly splendid book of homes that might otherwise not be photographed due to the owners' need for privacy. Paul Wiseman's (The Wiseman Group) Belvedere home is just divine.
Photos by Matthew Millman show the West Coast's unique contributions to architecture, materials and finishes, not to mention its unforgettable light.
A must read. Great gift for Holidays.
