STOP THE CAR (and sell the kids)!

Before you accuse me clickbait, this house is slathered in awesome sauce. And there’s so much, we don’t even know where to start. Maybe something easy — the location. Not only is this one of the best neighborhoods in San Pedro (pretty regularly one of our favorite hidden coastal spots), it’s located right above Averill Park. The photos don’t quite show this, but the effect of the design of the house is that it feels like the park is a personal backyard when you look out the window. Yeah, we’re not exaggerating — this isn’t just a “park like” backyard — the backyard actually is a park! There’s also a small ocean view, too. 

But let’s get down to it — a cool yard isn’t enough for us to feature a home. It’s the design, the details, and I’m even going to say it — the size. It’s not that there’s anything spectacular about a 3450 square foot house. It’s that this is a 3450 square foot home built in 1959. In the 1950s, 3000 square feet might as well have been 30,000 square feet. if you love the design aesthetic of 50’s modern homes, you’ve probably resigned yourself to a Lilliputian home with a conspicuous lack of storage. Throw that notion aside when you tour this beauty. It’s large and in-charge. 

Every room feels special — with built-in cabinetry and wood details in most. Eschewing convention, the architects chose an off-set beam structure — the main living doesn’t have ridge beam, instead it has two beams offset to the sides and the center of the ceiling almost appears to float, magically. The effect is enhanced even further with clerestory windows that extend all the way to the ceiling. From the fireplace to the room divider to even the triple droplet chandelier in the dining room — everything in this home is exceptional. This is the first time it has hit the market since it was built.

While the temptation might be to redo and update — don’t. This the kind of home you live in for 6 months without doing a single thing. It’s a special home and as a hotrod builder once told me: it’s only original once. 

Don’t let the most spectacular architectural home in San Pedro slip through the cracks. Call us today for a private showing.
