Built in 1953, this Palos Verdes home looks great for its age, offering picture windows, wood and tile floors, and peaceful views.
In the living room, a row of large windows and a window seat show off the lovely views from this approximately half-acre property. The cork floors and fireplace here add a nice warm touch.
A brick-filled den holds a second fireplace, as well as a “custom exterior door with Nautical port hole”—fitting for a home in a coastal neighborhood. The house’s two bedrooms feature bamboo floors, handsome custom wood closets, and built-ins.
Outside the house, the rear yard holds swimming pool with a little waterfall, stone features, and landscaping of bamboo and tropical plants. The property also has horse stables and raised planting beds.
The home was designed by Raymond E. Wallace. The San Pedro-based architect and avid boatman often incorporated his love of the ocean into his designs. Two of his best known projects were the sailing ship Columbia—which is a fixture at Disneyland—and Long Beach’s Shoreline Village.
