Crest view of the Pacific Palisades, Santa Monica, California
An illustrious 1957 example of Richard Neutra's California Modernism, the structure is a post and beam grid with a broad flat roof, expansive views of Malibu and the Pacific Coast Highway meeting the Ocean.
With the view and proximity to the beach, there isn't a need for a swimming pool so a giant jumping trampoline was installed. The sloping hillside garden is strategically laid out in multiple terraces to maximize space and depth. Buddha hand citrus is growing with a number of exotic perennials are planted throughout this flamboyant garden. It's dolve vita with an afternoon tea session in the cool summer breeze of the Pacific Palisades.
The interior design is California eclectic Rosewood House, with items acquired on trips throughout the Orient over a period of three decades. The feeling is upscale global-traveled refinement with magical character beyond wonderland.
