This gorgeous custom home was completely rebuilt in 2009 in Sukiya style, a Japanese architectural style that aims to create harmony between inside and outside, as well as with the surroundings through architecture and design.
The welcoming garden in the front yard features bonsai trees, a hand carved stone lantern and a sea of Korean grass. A stone fountain in the courtyard garden contributes to a peaceful atmosphere that can also be enjoyed from the main suite and the third bedroom.
Features inside the home include six skylights, French doors constructed with rice paper between two pieces of glass, solid bamboo floors and an open floor plan with vaulted ceilings. Fleetwood multi slide doors open to the freshwater pool, stone waterfall and backyard which makes for a perfect entertaining space. Wood craftsman Harold Greene designed and built all of the cabinetry, including a custom Tansu step cabinet with a slab live edge California walnut; kitchen cabinets, a shade structure made from a bent glulam post, with the end carved as a water dragon’s head; and a copper roof with metalwork of a dragon.
The primary ensuite comprises a solid walnut and Douglas fir desk; bookcase and file drawer unit. In the bathroom the cabinets and wall unit were built of rare Wenge wood, created by Harold Greene. Dual sinks are made of bamboo with a granite countertop and an extra-large soaking tub and shower. The second bathroom has beautiful custom tile and the door opens to the yard for easy pool access. This home has quality workmanship and unparalleled attention to detail throughout.
Additional features include stainless appliances in the kitchen and honed granite counters, a speaker system throughout the house, newer water heating systems, a back up generator, cedar garage door, fascia and front fencing with glass panels as well as copper gutters and custom eaves.
Outside, the pool is adorned with custom, handmade tile, stonework and a waterfall flowing into it. Inside and out this home is a refuge once you walk in the door.
All of this and award winning Palos Verdes schools and close to shopping and restaurants.
