Home Of The Week
Every detail of this completely redesigned estate has been thoughtfully selected, from the quality of its craftsmanship and materials to a design aesthetic offering comfort and function and the latest smart home technology.
More than 50 arches were removed as part of a clean-line design to expand living spaces and simplify, modernize, lighten and brighten the approximately 5,000-square-foot home built in 2006. A Crestron automation system makes it easy to control all of the home’s integrated technology, which includes a Sonos wireless sound system, Apple TV, security camera system, Lutron lighting and a motorized system that conceals televisions with artwork.
Luxurious appointments are abundant throughout this magnificent contemporary estate, including imported limestone and European oak flooring. The two kitchens (one is in the adjacent pool house), six bathrooms and large laundry room all feature gorgeous marble tile from Ann Sacks, New Ravenna and Artistic Tile & Marble Systems.
The expanded kitchen has new cabinetry, marble countertops, a Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer columns, a six-burner Wolf range, two Miele dishwashers and a warming drawer, as well as a large island and breakfast bar. The farmhouse dining room addition includes shiplap paneling and a vaulted ceiling. There is also an oversized family room, living room and an office/bonus room.
The spacious master bedroom suite includes a fireplace and bi-folding doors leading to a balcony overlooking the lovely backyard, plus a beautifully designed bathroom with a large walk-in shower that includes multiple showerheads and a built-in bench, plus a separate soaking tub.
Surrounded by lush plantings, the impressive resort-like outdoor living area is perfect for year-round dining, entertaining and relaxation, with a new pool and spa, firepit lounge area, covered and heated loggia with a fireplace, barbecue bar and outdoor shower. The raised yard boasts views of the ocean and sunsets behind Catalina Island, and the incredible pool house offers a gourmet kitchen with Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances and a full bath.
The home is a rare contemporary estate in one of Southern California’s most desirable settings.
