Ladd & Kelsey
The Von Hagen Residence, 1975
From this mountaintop vantage above Malibu one surveys the world like an Olympic God, but instead of the Mediterranean, the Pacific is below. Everything lies below: The Santa Monica Bay, Century City, Downtown L.A., Palos Verdes, Orange County, the Simi Hills and the San Fernando Valley. The 13 acre site includes 6 parcels for future development. A long gated private drive ascends through park-like grounds to Ladd & Kelsey's classic modern villa comprising 4 bedrooms, 5.5 baths, den, study, and attached carport. Additional amenities include a modern utility barn big enough to house a large audience screening room and a full-sized pool.
