The talk of the town in Manhattan Beach home design and concept is the unveiling of the Sunset Magazine 2014 Idea House, and the City of Manhattan Beach couldn’t be more proud than to be home to this state-of-the-art, unique show piece.  Newly constructed and just completed last week, this showcase home will open to the public this coming weekend for self-guided tours that will allow visitors to explore the very latest in home design, concept, and innovation. This year’s home was designed by DISC Interiors in Los Angeles. Designers Krista Schrock and David John Dick have been teaming together since 2011 and their work has quickly become recognized by publications such as Dwell on Design, House & Garden Magazine and more. We are excited to see what their vision unfolds for us here in the 2014 Sunset Idea House, as Manhattan Beach is consistently on the forefront of developing luxury and eco-conscious design concepts both inside and outside of the home. Built from the ground up, the 2014 Idea Home incorporates the latest “ideas” in architectural concepts, garden and landscaping, exterior finishes and of course, what’s hot in the interior design world today based on the experts at Sunset. Sunset Magazine has been building and displaying their exclusive and creative Idea House concept for many years now and you can explore all of their Idea Houses from the past by clicking here. By touring the Idea House, you will be able to see the latest in color palates incorporated with texture and textiles along with state of the art appliances and home gadgets as well as drought resistant landscape ideas, and space saving living garden concepts. Especially exciting for those in the neighborhood who have been watching the home take shape, tours will open this Friday, August 1 and will continue through September 7, 2014. The home is located off of Meadows Ave in what is known as East Manhattan Beach. It is within walking distance to Mira Costa High School and Pennykamp Elementary School. The home is not, at this time, for sale.FIRST IN LOS ANGELES In years past, the Idea House has typically been located in Northern California, so for Manhattan Beach to be selected as this year’s location is not only a tribute to fabulous Southern California living, but an honor to have been considered and chosen as the first Idea House to be completed in Los Angeles by the prestigious publication.  The Manhattan Beach Idea House was designed by our very own local, renowned architect, Louis Tomaro of the Tomaro Design Groupright here in Manhattan Beach. The home was constructed by Mike Davis Custom Homes, also of Manhattan Beach. The gardens and landscape were designed and installed by South Bay landscape Designers, Masterpeace Gardens. The Caskey & Caskey team has been utilizing the design skills of the people at Masterpeace Gardens, for quite some time. We count on the talents of their crew to aid in preparing our listings to meet the market with a competitive edge. We are pleased to see that they were chosen for this very special project and are delighted that the community will be able to preview the work of the vendors we enjoy partnering with on a daily basis. Caskey & Caskey has also had the pleasure of showcasing numerous homes designed by Louis Tomaro and Mike Davis as they have listed and sold in our community over the years. KTLA Channel 5 has been following the unveiling of the completed Idea House and have posted online a series of preview videos.
