904 Highview Avenue, Manhattan Beach,
On this A+ Manhattan Beach Hill Section corner, Gerald Horn, F.A.I.A. designed Sharon’s California House II, an A.I.A. award winning residence that has become a local landmark. The artistic architecture is a studied yet warm expression of modernism, and affords a rare and sophisticated backdrop for incredible, unblockable ocean views. Custom steel truss beams vault the open plan interiors, while solid teak wood windows warm the space, and frame panoramic water vistas. Working in poured concrete, steel and glass, Horn has floated the embracing U shaped living spaces above the completely private interior courtyard totally reimagined as a large entertaining yard with fire pit, built in seating areas and a perfectly placed ocean viewing window. The interior of the home was recently luxuriously remodeled with top of the line appointments by the current owner who is an artist and has a richly sophisticated palate. While only a few minutes from downtown or the beach, the premier location allows for convenient guest parking, and quiet enjoyment of the Manhattan Beach environment. Residence includes: living room and formal dining room, family room that opens to the private courtyard, 3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, and direct entrance 2 car garage.
