Open House Obsession: Rob Morrow’s Rational Exuberance In Santa Monica, $7.2MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Where: 562 Stassi Lane, Santa Monica
When: Sunday, October 18 from 2:00pm-5:00pm
What: Designed by architect Melinda Gray in 2006, the 4-bed, 4-bath home of actor, writer, and director Rob Morrow could be a study in LA minimalism. The hard edges of a long, open living space open to an equally long lap pool (as much a water feature as a place to swim) while sliding walls of glass seamlessly bring the outdoors in.
Meanwhile, interior designer Schuyler Samperton, probably best known for her deeply-colored, luxe cottage look, pulled together a sybaritic but witty interior around Gray’s exposed steel and concrete. Those furry mounds below: pets or poufs?
Upstairs, a library is perched above the loft-like living spaces, joining a master suite and two additional bedrooms.
Homes in LA come with all manner of screening rooms; Morrow’s elegant wood-paneled sanctuary is up near the top.
More: Head over to the listing for additional details and images. Below, off the bedrooms, Gray’s composition of balconies looks out over the pool and the heavily-wooded lot.
