At the end of a cul-de-sac and down a private drive, find an expertly landscaped nearly 3/4 of an acre street to street property. At its center- a stunning Modernist home designed by internationally acclaimed architect Thornton Ladd in 1955. Entry is through an all glass breezeway- the focal point of an inspired design that weaves together distinct public and private areas under a subtle butterfly roof. Down a skylit hallway, two spacious master suites, jack and jill bedrooms, and laundry area make up one wing of the house; living room, kitchen, and dining make up the other. Beautiful solid black walnut floors are laid on diagonal throughout. In the open plan kitchen and dining area, a large central island workspace, sculptural steel and brick fireplace, numerous original built-ins, and direct access to a dramatic elevated view terrace. Downstairs is a finished basement with its own private patio and entrance, perfect for a guest/5th bedroom or home office. Sensitively restored and skillfully updated, it has been readied for its next owner to simply move in and reap the rewards. An incredibly private setting, with views to Catalina and magnificent gardens for entertaining or reflection. An absolute one of a kind property.
