Beautifully nestled onto 6.34 acres, this impeccably restored home was designed by Willard Francis, a protégé of Frank Lloyd Wright, in the modernist style of architecture. All of the original detail (wood work, metal windows and doors with original hardware, hand crafted, cooper roof, and mitered corner windows) has been restored or rebuilt.
The Western wing of the one story floor plan includes a gracious living room with adjacent formal dining area, a well appointed office, gourmet kitchen with breakfast room, various utility rooms and a large bedroom, gym or media room with full bath, for use as needed.
The Eastern wing has three bedrooms, a delightful sitting room with fireplace plus a large master suite with two large dressing rooms and a beautifully designed master bath. The majority of the Southern facing rooms opens out onto the terraces and enjoys the ocean view. Large picture windows bring an abundance of light and views of the gardens into the interior of the home.
A two bedroom guest house offers the same quality of construction and detail as found in the main house. It provides a living room with fireplace, a kitchenette, private patio, large office and two car garages. All of the inner workings of the house are of the highest quality and service capability. There are plans for a large barn/out building and gas pipes have been laid in the ground for a pool if one is desired.
Offset by a full horizon view of the Pacific Ocean to the South and a dynamic mountain expanse to the North, the property includes mature Oaks, Olives and an assortment of fruit trees, as well as over two acres of avocado trees which are service by an agricultural meter. There are copious beds of seasonal flowers, abundant roses and vegetable gardens. Original stone patios are the corner stone of the well designed walkways which meanders throughout.
Frank Lloyd Wright believed in designing structures which were in harmony with humanity and its environment, a philosophy he called organic architecture. This remarkable home full fills that vision.
