The Caterson Residence, 1967

1508 Paseo Del Mar, Palos Verdes Estates, CA 90274
ActiveFor Sale$4,350,000


With landscaping by Tatsuo Hiramoto. Prior to moving his family to Southern California, original owner Howard Caterson frequented the Cleveland Museum of Art, where director Sherman Lee (1958-1983) was an expert on Asian Art. That experience later sparked the synthesis between Wilson’s post and beam design with Japanese elements, while carefully integrating the natural beauty of the Lunada Bay landscape. The living spaces are lifted and turned above the site to allow maximum light and ocean views into almost every room in the house. Inside, prominent roof beams project through the living room and out beyond the glass walls, focusing one’s view out to the coastline, with panoramic views of the ocean and city beyond. Rare, especially in Palos Verdes Estates, this light-filled living environment carefully integrates 6 bedrooms, 6 baths, redwood paneling, wrap-around living room deck, and original Japanese front garden and hardscape.
