I’m disappointing myself (and probably you) with this title. This house is amazing. Shockingly awesome for $1.2M. It’s the kind of place you buy with the intention of it never leaving your family. Instead of trendy design du jour, it’s timeless. Sure, the 90s kitchen was a regrettable attempt at modernizing, but that can be fixed. This is a panoramic view home sited on beautiful 14,000 square foot spot above the coast. It’s a veritable “city in the clouds” with a meandering design that surrounds a courtyard.
What amazes me the most is the creativity in the design. It may look like a 1960s “Polynesian” ranch on the outset, but the interior shows a creative, experimental, design that pays homage to some Asia’s best architectural traits. Combine that with excellent sensitivity to the site, and you have a masterpiece. It needs some refreshing, for sure, but the bones are here for the kind of property that a family could enjoy for generations.
My favorite room is by far the living room. The bold ceiling makes a statement, the panoramic view holds your attention for hours on end. The question is always if a home can be made amazing (this one can, no doubt), but it is it worth it. This one is worth it. I want this one to go to a good home. I need this one to go to a good home.
