Property Description

Rarely does a home of this architectural significance come to market. Completed in 1983 over the span of 15 years, this single-owner modernist masterpiece is primarily constructed of concrete and redwood a design well ahead of its time. Perched overlooking the Santa Monica Canyon, the idyllic setting boasts head-on ocean views from nearly every room. The craftsmanship is unparalleled, with awe-inspiring details that include vertical hand-chiseled concrete walls and floor-to-ceiling redwood paneling throughout the three-story residence. The primary suite consumes the upper floor with direct access to the two-car garage. The three guest bedrooms are situated below, each with unique features, access points, and vistas. Center stage is the formal dining, living-room, kitchen, breakfast room, den, and laundry room, all complemented by stunning ocean views. The over 900 sq. ft. rooftop entertainment deck is the breathtaking highlight of the property. The deck begs for large gatherings and al fresco dining, while enjoying 360 degree views of the SM Canyon and Pacific Ocean. This is the ideal location to host celebrations, including the 4th of July firework spectacles held annually along the coast. Bonus features include an impressive walk-in safe/wine room, four private viewing decks, an area to BBQ off the kitchen, and private access to one of Santa Monica's secret and exclusive stairways for exercise enthusiasts that provides beach access. The deep lot provides enough space for a pool installation if the ocean isn't warm enough. Located at the base of Amalfi Drive, experience the best the Palisades and Santa Monica Canyon has to offer. Enjoy the new Caruso Palisades Village, esteemed public charter schools (Canyon School), and arguably the best location to live in LA. Come visit this iconic modernist beach house, and appreciate what many would consider not just a home, but a masterwork of Los Angeles architecture and a timeless jewel of the Southern California coastline.
