Monumental Moves: 14800 Corona Del Mar On The Market For $18MAuthor:Candace Abbott
When a property has descriptors like “timeless” or “monumental” attached to it, you may want to explore why. But now that 14800 Corona Del Mar in Pacific Palisades has gone on the market, you’ll know at first glance just why this home receives such grand adjectives.
The 8,959 square foot property is more than just that. A part of this home was the #20 Case Study House built by famed architect Richard Neutra and a Mid-century gem attached to the Sam Simon Estate. And though the Bailey house shares the spotlight with the 7,124 square food, LEED certified Gold 4-bedroom contemporary main house, it’s no less spectacular.
The stunning estate features a total of 5 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, and a living spaces that overflows with style. In the main home, built in 2010, the design is contemporary through and through, designed with a luscious open floor plan that’s ideal for entertaining. Rich cherry wood flooring does a tango with concrete gray walls and traditional archways which guide the way to the marvelous outdoor space. There you’ll find a cascading infinity-edge pool with the Bailey house in perfect view.
And as if the home’s beauty weren’t enough on its own, a twirling staircase, opulent modern art spilling from the ceiling, bedrooms with glass double doors that show off the lush property, a theater/game room, and more, plus the home operates on energy conservation technology and sustainable, toxin-free materials have been used throughout. Nothing about this property says, rustic, but everything about it says chic and conscious.
The Bailey with its rich history is one of the remaining 21 homes built by Neutra and holds a Santa Monica Conservancy Renovation award after being preserved and renovated by restoration artists Marmol Radziner. But along with its accolades, the home is undoubtedly unique. It features Mid-century styling and design at its absolute best with glass doors that allow the space to flood with natural light.
Once inside, you can’t help but be transported (and amazed) by the retro feel. Luxurious green area rugs and wooden detail throughout, tulip chairs, and stylish bulb lighting over the communal dining table, low ceilings, a wood-panel wall in the bedroom, and even more sliding glass allow the room to envelope the sunshine. The space is modern enough to live in, but vintage enough to take you back in time.
All in all, the Sam Simon Estate is pure magic. It’s a look forward and a look back hugged by lush grounds that are enchanting.
With an $18,000,000 asking price, this place is not only your own piece of history, but your own bit of the future. And that’s monumental.
