Hillside Custom Home
3420 Silverado Trail North

The Arrowhead was designed in 1982 by Modern / Zen architect Douglas Hayes as an homage to the ancestral artifacts found on the site. Each angle of the arrowhead captures a different emotion - the panache of the panoramic valley floor view, the romance of crimson sunsets, and the tranquility of the forest. High ceilings, walls of glass, two plus acres of privacy, and the turn the key and go simplicity of natural flora complete the vision.
