Set on one of the premiere lots in Marquez Knolls, this mid-century architectural masterpiece offers unobstructed, panoramic views from Downtown Los Angeles to Santa Monica Bay, Palos Verdes and Catalina. Stunningly reimagined in 1991 by Lawrence Bernstein - AIA, a Fellow of Frank Lloyd Wright at Taliesin and MIT architecture graduate, the home features inviting, sophisticated interiors modeled after Wright’s design concepts.
Lawrence Bernstein truly incorporated Wright’s mantra of bringing “the inside out and outside in." From the water feature lining the entrance walkway to the majestic views experienced the moment one enters the front door to numerous floor-to-ceiling windows, the home radiates natural beauty and tranquility. The soaring vaulted ceilings enhance the scale while the ocean and coastline vistas draw the eye to the outdoors.
Offering five bedrooms and five bathrooms in over 4,100 square feet and sited on a generous, mostly flat 12,457-square-foot-lot, the residence boasts an open great room floor plan with an abundance of natural light. The library/office is thoughtfully designed to display literary collections and provide a serene ocean-view work experience. A fully equipped black granite bar features floating glass shelves and seats five. The master bedroom boasts extraordinary views, dual bathrooms, a two-sided fireplace, walk-in closet and attached outdoor makeup vanity and spa. A true chef’s kitchen provides everything a cook could ever desire; a center island, Wolf range, double wall ovens, a brick-framed indoor grill, two Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezers, custom plating table, three sinks, two warming drawers and a walk-in pantry. Whether entertaining in the grand dining room or serving 200 people on the view-facing patio and grassy backyard, this property is a true entertainer’s dream.
With unrivaled views, Frank Lloyd Wright’s signature stylings, exceptional craftsmanship, close proximity to the beach and the new Caruso Palisades Village, this home offers dynamic living in one of L.A.’s most sought-after enclaves.
