Our Opinion: If you’re anything like us, you’ve been dreaming about this space day and night since we first
gave you a glimpse last week. There’s a wealth of hidden gems tucked into the ‘hoods and hills of this salty
city, and this original-from-head-to-toe number is quickly climbing the list of our favorite spaces. Designed by
renowned architect William Pereira*, in collaboration with the home’s current (and original) owner, the space
was made for living and living well. As was custom the year the home was built, 1969, this house was designed
for the day-to-day, as well as for throwing a fabulous party. Everything from the art that filled it, to the (then
very futuristic) sound system, to the cutting-edge furniture (think: first year Eames chair and ottoman), to the
double-sided fireplace, was an intentional addition to celebrate all things “the good life”. One is first greeted by
the original (in every sense of the word) bark-paneled door. Upon entering, the wall of glass across the way
immediately reconnects you with the exterior, and the brick outside spills inside for a continuous, fluid
feel. Parquet floors, floor-to-ceiling windows, and the aforementioned brick guide you from room to
breathtaking room. A few choice pieces: the stunning wall of windows, which looks into the back yard, and the
natural cork paper-paneled wall. The magnum opus is surely the hearth, which is so much more than a hearth.
The majority of the volume in this home is centered around a living space that is beyond to die for. This is the
room where all lines, elements, and materials cross–stone, concrete, glass, volume, and light meet. The hall’s
dropped soffit serves to accentuate the taller ceilings here. The stunning, double-sided fireplace undeniably
anchors the home, and–just like with all other planes in this place–if you follow the stone, it leads you from one
room to the next. In this case, it leads you past the study into the main suite, where you’ll find the fireplace’s
second face. The space is incredibly diverse, yet sublimely cohesive. The design both within and without this
home is unquestionably one of a kind, and of course, it would be remiss not to mention that this home is seated
squarely on 1.65 acres. This is a rare bit of architectural history that makes us not only love where we live, but
beam with pride for it as well. It’s opportunity, and it’s knockin’. Won’t you get the door?
