Open House Obsession: Big Views, Big Spaces In Pacific Palisades, $5.5M


With a view of Pacific Ocean and the curve of Santa Monica Bay all the way to the Los Angeles, this 4-bed, 5-bath home in Marquez Heights underwent a comprehensive renovation in 2015/16. A dramatic composition in white stucco and weathered, recycled wood set on a poured concrete platform, it’s open on Sunday, May 26 from 2:00pm to 5:00pm.

The elevated concrete platform creates a private, open “living room” above the street; the immense entertaining spaces open seamlessly to the outdoors.

A terraced area with pool and spa is set behind the house but high enough to take in the ocean view.

Marquez Heights– a quiet neighborhood of mostly Mid-Century homes– is convenient to downtown Pacific Palisades, the ocean and Will Rogers State Park, plus an easy to commute to LA’s Westside. Originally built in 1959 (and once owner by actor Dennis Quaid) the property was totally reinvented by design/build developer Daniel Starr, who sold it to the current owners. Fully updated systems include a pair of EV charging stations in the garage.

Below, the spacious master suite also opens to the view.
