Luxury Architectural Living in the Sand Section
There's something to be said for living in a rare Pat Killen designed home. Once the experience of visiting more than one Killen home has transpired, his vision for a life balanced between highly functional luxury appreciation and minimal, peaceful spaces becomes very clear. Intended to truthfully make one feel “at home” as one moves from room to room in an open, harmonious environment, this home embraces natural light, peaceful ocean views and daily living spaces that can effortlessly transform into artful entertaining areas. The original owners of this treasured architectural masterpiece present 424 33rd Street . . . as all great art does, the intentional composition begs the eye to move from focal point to focal point in order to come to a conclusion of something unique, something inspired and something truly timeless.
The beach level entry level instantly presents a home that is ready to be enjoyed all summer long with ease of access from the main level entertaining spaces that open direct to the front patio. Continuing on, a custom home office is separated from the main living and entertaining areas, along with guest quarters and a full laundry room.
A light and open staircase, accented by warm wood tones set against cool steel elements, invites one to experience the next level of the home where the main bedrooms are located conveniently near each other, keeping members of the household engaged and connected. Two of the bedrooms each enjoy use of a sunny and private rear deck area, while the master presents private ocean views set against a calm interior that includes a floor-to-ceiling fireplace and a relaxing spa-like retreat that beckons from the master bath beyond.
The main entertaining areas are located on the uppermost level offering an open concept living and entertaining environment. High ceilings welcome abundant natural light and two ocean view decks offer private spaces to sit back and and just simply enjoy the views. The custom designed kitchen is intended to remain connected to the casual family spaces on the one hand and to the more fluid, formal spaces on the other. Every member of the household can easily find a place either for some private time or to remain close at hand to take part in both formal entertaining and casual family living.
The entire atmosphere is one of easily enjoying an active beach community or simply retreating to a relaxed and spatially balanced mode of living. Conveniently located walking distance to the beach as well as the restaurants and coffee shops tucked away in quiet North Manhattan Beach; within 15 mins. of LAX and 25 mins of nearby teach campuses, this home is situated within an award winning public school system and an active beach community.
