What a rarity, at the top of the hill! This inspired, artistic, custom modern home features abundant natural light, wonderful ocean views and a substantial, private backyard. Enjoy views of the sky, neighborhood and the beautiful Pacific from all across the open-concept living spaces upstairs. The kitchen, the heart of the home, features new tile flooring, ample counter space, built-in cooktop, breakfast bar, island with prep sink, large walk-in pantry and distinctive open shelving to display your favorite items. The dining area has high ceilings, with a large space flexible enough to host 4 people, 20 or more. Spacious family room features ample light and a half bath. Don’t miss the large tiled deck with ocean views, accessed via foldaway, floor-to-ceiling glass doors that welcome ocean breezes into the living space. A/C is installed for those warmer days. Downstairs, you’ll find all three bedrooms plus an office, two baths and separate laundry room. The bamboo flooring throughout the home, and the ippei wood front door, posts and railings, only hint at the owners’ commitment to sustainability in materials chosen for each room. Wood-framed windows and sliding doors on the bedroom level add to the aura of nature blended with modern living. The backyard is unusually large for the area, great for entertaining, gardening or just a safe space to run around. Landscaping is drought tolerant with drip irrigation. Neighborhood is very walkable - close to shops & restaurants and just a few minutes to Pier Avenue. Local schools are top-rated, with choice of high school (Mira Costa, Redondo Union). This home is all refreshed, lovely and ready for you!
