Set back from the road on a quiet, private, gated lot of approximately 0.74 acre, this spacious and bright Traditional home has been beautifully updated. With expansive lawns and patios for play and entertaining, plus ocean views and a guest house, the property is offered for sale for the first time in 20 years. At the top of a slight rise with a verdant lawn, huge trees, and a patio for dining and relaxation, the welcoming front of the house looks out across treetops to the ocean and the Palos Verdes Peninsula. The home’s interior combines classic details such as crown molding with updated features such as a built-in speaker system, recessed lighting, and all brand-new pipes. At one end of the formal living room is a lovely wood-burning fireplace flanked by a pair of French doors that open to a patio and the back yard. On the other end of the room is an enormous picture window facing the front lawn and ocean view. Through wide doorways, this room flows easily to the adjacent kitchen, and a family/recreation/workout room with cement floors. The kitchen, fully and beautifully remodeled, features wonderful views, high vaulted ceilings with skylights, a waterfall Calacatta marble island with bar seating, a large pantry, and top-quality appliances and fixtures. In addition to a pass-through window to the patio, the kitchen has four sets of French doors leading to an outdoor living/sitting area. Off the kitchen is a formal dining room with ocean views and grass cloth walls, which steps down to an additional sitting room that could be an office or play room. The main home’s three bedrooms include a serene owner’s suite, complete with sitting area, French doors to the side yard with ocean views, and luxurious bath with radiant heat floors, a door to the side yard and indoor/outdoor shower. The home’s huge backyard features an infrared sauna, a patio with dining area, lounge and bar seating, a spacious lawn and a gated garden.
