Seriously Fabulous in Pacific Palisades, $26.75MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Where: 1143 Ravoli Drive, Pacific Paliades
What: A seriously handsome new house in the desirable, star-studded Riveria neighborhood, setting the bar for luxury construction. On almost an acre, this 8-bed, 12-bath mansion for the 21st Century includes such amenities as underground parking and a safe room, a second kitchen hidden (ideal for caterers) from the open main kitchen, and an elevator connecting all three levels. The bed/bath count includes a staff apartment and a guest house.
The Team: Gunderson Matkins is one of the most respected luxury developers on the Westside; the architecture/design firm of O+L Building Projects brings multiple talents and expertise. Represented by Pacific Union International’s luxury specialists Hugh Evans III and Randy Forbes Jr.
What We Love: The masterful use of materials that could be be overwhelmingly heavy in less talented hands; the rough-form, poured concrete is impeccable (and even operatic, below) as are the almost frameless sliding walls of glass throughout.
On the second level, the immense master suite has dual dressing rooms and baths.
