A named architectural for under $2 million? Built in 1966, this 2700 square foot home is tucked into a 12,000 square foot lot with peekaboo views of the ocean in the luxurious community of Rancho Palos Verdes. Pierre Koenig designed this for the Henbest family and the current owner bought it from the family trust in 2002.
In almost entirely original condition, the details of the space and the materials are as fresh and exciting as the day the certificate of occupancy was issued. Radiant floor heat works beautifully. With a peek-a-boo view of the ocean, air conditioning isn't necessary.Â The terrazzo tile floors in the kitchen and baths are exquisite.Â The space is open, with floor to ceiling windows throughout, and sliding glass doors to the Zen garden and the other outdoor spaces around the house.
This is a pristine mid-century perfect for the true mid-century buff. There are 3 bedrooms, an office that could be a 4th bedroom, plus a spacious entry, a powder room with the original Asian inspired wallpaper, a living room large enough for a grand piano at one end, a formal dining room with a passthrough to the kitchen which is open to the family room that extends the depth of the house. There are two bedrooms at one end of the house with a bath between and the master with its own bath at the other side of the house with the office/guest room.
The garage is large enough for two cars plus storage. The yard is very private, locatedÂ mostly in the front behind the privacy fence. The teahouse and koi pond are original and there is an outdoor dining area that has views of the garden.
Open for viewing Saturday, May 16, 3 to 7:30 pm.
