First time on the market since completion in 1992. After raising their children successfully in the Huntington Palisades an accomplished, creative couple hired Finn Kappe to help realize their dream house for the next chapter of their lives. The site originally housed a small historical Spanish structure, which was honored by preserving the facade and ornamental tile sections in the interior. The design, however, is modern and constructed mostly of cinder block and glass yet warmly contrasted with dark oak floors, colorful murals and timbered doors. Sited on a private lane, overlooking Rustic/Santa Monica Canyons, the house captures impressive green belt and urban views in all directions. Centering the house is the dramatic, voluminous living room with hearth set into the 2-story glass wall. The kitchen, dining wing, with attached indoor/outdoor areas plus three living quarters with baths reach in opposite directions on two levels. The floor plan offers unusual privacy and flexibility with access to the outdoor gardens and patios from every room. Sand and surf await nearby.
