The panoramic ocean and city views are glorious from multiple floor-to-ceiling windows, but it's the architecture that steals the show at this Clarendon Heights home originally designed by Marquis & Stoller for midcentury furniture designer Jules Heumann.
The home reflects the era with a shingle exterior, a central entry courtyard, original redwood-paneled walls, high angular ceilings, and iconic pops of orange.
Inside, a series of tall narrow windows bring a play of light into the home for a bright, indoor-outdoor sensibility. The result is a space that feels both grand and cozy.
The living room has plenty of built-in shelving to store all your books for evenings by the fireplace in the den, which steps out to a deck. A hidden bar in the dining room makes the party available when you're ready for it. Swathed in wood, the eat-in kitchen opens to the courtyard.
Upstairs in the private quarters, there are three bedrooms, one with a fireplace, plus the primary suite which includes a sitting room and office. A laundry and exercise room complete this floor.
While its design recalls a specific time period, the home is outfitted with modern amenities like a spacious wine cellar, three-car garage with a private driveway entrance, and even an elevator.
