The telescoping floor-to-ceiling glass doors open the master bedroom to the coastline. Woods said one goal was to contain and manage foot traffic, preserving privacy from room to room. Note how a guardrail subtly partitions the master suite from the vast lounging deck. Homeowner Mickey Liddell, a producer whose credits include the TV series "Everwood" and the Liam Neeson action film "The Grey," said weekend guests "can get up early in the morning and be in and out on that deck, and I don't even know it." The first-floor deck is divided by another guardrail, so romping kids or loud adults outside the living room won't spill onto the deck by the office and distract someone trying to work.
