The low-slung horizontal roof and tongue-and-groove ceiling are the key features of this home’s architecture. The slender posts and beams give the home a sophisticated and simple look. The form and function of this home are perfectly expressed through its architecture.

The second owners of this home have done an amazing job restoring it to its original design intent. The Poliform Italian kitchen is stunning, with Corian countertops, high-end stainless steel appliances, and custom cabinetry. The cork and polished concrete floors are beautiful, and the decorative tile and European fixtures add the perfect finishing touches.

A spectacular hillside sparkling pool and hardscape provide sweeping views of the Santa Monica Bay as far as Catalina.

The Mills Act status guarantees reduced property taxes, but the grandfathered additionmay enable future expansion to include a second story with captivating views.
