Take Highway 9 to the north end of Ben Lomond. Turn on to Alba Road. Proceed uphill for 0.3 miles to number 10300 on your right. Take the next left onto Lorien Way (wooden sign on tree) and follow the long driveway through the gate to the house.

Note that many GPS units and online maps have the directions wrong and Lorien Way in the wrong place, so once it gets you to Alba road, use the directions and this map instead.

BMW Z3 Roadster

1997 BMW Z3 1.9 Roadster. 210,000 miles. 5 speed transmission. A joy to drive on highway 9. Heated leather seats. Good tires. Runs great but has a damaged fender from a recent parking lot incident. Complete repair estimate is $2050 from Ronnie's Auto Body in Scotts Valley. I am sure it can be fixed for less. The damage does not affect the driving of the car and it was driven from Arizona to here since the accident.


The BMW Z3 was James Bond's car in GoldenEye, the first non-British production car to feature in a Bond movie as the spy's primary mode of transport. It came fully equipped with "all the usual refinements" including a self-destruct system and stinger missiles located behind the headlights.

Michael Leeds Fused Glass Sculpture or Window

World famous Santa Cruz artist Michael Leeds created this fused glass artwork called Moonlight Series Number 1 consisting of ten individual panes, which together make an 84 by 28 inch window.

We intended it for a house we were designing at the time but didn't build. Currently the "window" is mounted in a free standing solid wood armature with tunable RGB LED back lighting. The scene takes on a completely different atmosphere depending on the selected color of the back lighting.

The work can be used in an outside wall, as a room divider, or as a free standing sculpture the way we have it now.
