Sophisticated modernism by the beach--completed in 2001, this U-shaped glass, cement, steel & wood residence accomplishes the rare feat of combining a minimalist aesthetic with both comfort and a rich yet understated luxury. Industrial loft design elements are tempered by rich colors & wood strip floors. Maximum privacy vis-a-vis neighbors contrasts with the transparent life-style within, as metal-frame sliders or roll-up glass doors open to the central court from every room. Upstairs guest quarters will be divided into two bedrooms by owner if so requested (planned for in the original design), which then share equal access to a 3/4 bath off the hallway. Water views from upper floor and large roof deck; two fireplaces inside & direct garage access. The convenient location is walkable to both Chaya and Abbot Kinney.
