  • Corona Del Mar, CA

This European inspired farmhouse incorporates traditional architectural materials and form while introducing a contemporary open floor plan concept pursuing maximum ocean views. Dramatic and expansive Indoor/Outdoor living elements and modern technology are juxtaposed with old-world craftsmanship and custom detailing to create a truly unique coastal living experience. A circulation spine intersects the home and orients the entry on a separate axis that provides an unobstructed and framed view of Catalina Island by the means of a cantilevered operable steel wall system. The living areas are centered on an expansive peninsular fireplace and oriented towards the rear bluff-top yard improvements complete with a pool, large spa and fire-pit all with the Pacific Ocean as a backdrop. The dramatic entry is also accompanied by a large open courtyard that filters light down into a 3,000 square foot basement where one can enjoy private outdoor living, ample entertainment spaces including: state of the art theater, game room, full bar, conditioned wine room, gym, guest suite as well as a large 2,000 square foot garage.
