Description

Nestled in the highly sought-after Santa Monica Canyon, this iconic midcentury modern architectural gem boasts an unbeatable location between Santa Monica and Pacific Palisades. Designed by Architect David Hyun 1960, the home's angular lines and asymmetry of wood panels, glass windows, and beams create an unparalleled living experience. With nearly 4,000 SF of living space, 4 bedrooms, and 3 bathrooms, this residence is ideal for those seeking to preserve the architectural integrity of this stunning home. Upon entering, a glass-enclosed entry hallway guides you to the main open living space. A cement, and steel floating elliptical staircase is the focal point upon entering, followed by expansive walls of glass windows that frame the outdoors, transforming the interior into a unique haven. The main formal living area, centered around a 100+ year old oak tree, connects seamlessly to the formal dining area and a separate sitting room adorned with oak wood paneling. The updated, open-style kitchen maintains architectural integrity while incorporating modern high-end appliances. Downstairs, three spacious bedrooms share a full bathroom, while the upstairs becomes an entertainer's dream with a family room/lounge area featuring windows bordering the ceiling and an outdoor balcony surrounded by mature trees, an office, and special Zen inspired yoga room/optional 5th bedroom. The primary suite offers a unique treehouse-like retreat with a walk-in closet leading to a spa-like bathroom boasting his and hers sinks, an in-ground sunken tub, skylights, and two showers. Outside, a generous-sized pool is surrounded by mature trees for privacy, and the backyard provides direct access to Rustic Canyon Park with basketball, baseball, and tennis courts. Homes with mid-century style and thoughtful details like this are rare, especially in such a coveted location. Don't miss the chance to live in and own an irreplaceable designed masterpiece on the Westside.
