Never before on the market. This extraordinary example of mid-century modern architecture awaits the discerning buyer. The property comprises ~1.4A up a secluded driveway on a private road in prime Pacific Palisades. From 1958-1960, renowned architects Karl Klokke and Paul Wuesthoff designed and built this home as an avant-garde residence for a prominent local family. Sited on the lot to capture the beauty of the gardens and majestic trees, every room opens to a beautiful green private oasis. Floor to ceiling windows, sliding glass doors, post and beam design, flat roof and large overhangs define this one story masterpiece of indoor outdoor California living. Serenely private, the outside sitting and dining areas surround the magical pool, spa and rose garden. From the front door, a long gallery hall leads to a sunken living room with a cement floor, stone fireplace and walls of glass, continuing to the simple yet elegant dining room, with built-in cabinets and a modernist bar. The open plan kitchen seamlessly shares space with the family room with half walls and brick fireplace. Two separate bedroom wings allow simple functionality; three bedrooms on one side of the house and the primary suite on the other. The primary suite has a large bedroom, separate office, a zen meditation and massage room, two baths and a small kitchen. A bonus exterior studio/workout room is adjacent to the carport, the fruit orchard and orchid house.
