Property Description

William Wallace Reid, Architect,1953. This unassuming, private, sublime, sanctuary, is a South facing, jewel box. Placed on the brow of the canyon its floor-to-ceiling windows, and upper skylights, are strategically placed, capturing light and framing the borrowed space and views while coddled by mature trees and ocean breezes. The house is a work of art and a testament to details & style embracing the original post & beam design and vision of Architect William Wallace Reid and his wife Paula. The current owners stayed true to the original, complementing its soul with the comforts of the 21st century. Every part of the house has purpose without compromise of design. When entering the house one is immediately struck by the elevated materials and setting in nature. The house includes a luxurious main bedroom suite. When open to the living room the house is perfect for one or two individuals while also brilliant for entertaining the extended family and friends. The living room opens to the patio/gardens and canyon views with floor-to-ceiling windows and open beamed ceiling. The spacious family room and second bedroom/bath offer elevated comfort plus plenty of storage. The open cook’s kitchen opens to another private outdoor kitchen/patio area enhanced by the pizza oven with the backdrop of a mature Eucalyptus tree. The house is situated on a street-to-street lot with the potential for adding a well thought out garage and ADU while still preserving the privacy of the existing house. The house is being sold fully furnished and outfitted. You can see plans for the ADU under the Documents tab.
