Impressive south-facing vistas, from the Getty Villa to Palos Verdes and Catalina, are the focus of this architectural four-story townhouse. One-half of a duplex, the home features a dedicated office floor or possible income property, for optimal work-life balance. A poetic glass, plaster and limestone staircase spirals the four floors, also served by a private elevator. The first floor entry includes a mud room with closets, full bath, and a large laundry room with a dog-washing station, and even more storage in the direct access, three-car garage. Accessed by the staircase and elevator, or a separate entrance from the street, the second level features a tech-ready office with custom desks, travertine floors, a bedroom, bathroom, kitchenette and expansive private deck with whitewater views. The open concept, main living and dining area, on the third level, features a linear fireplace and a double-height curved wall of windows for dramatic light play and ocean liner views. The streamlined chef's kitchen with quartzite countertops, features Gaggenau and Miele appliances, and incudes a walk-in pantry and wide-plank European Oak floors. Also on the main floor is a powder room with a Calcutta gold marble wall and illuminated sink, and a guest room with en suite bathroom and a separate entrance. The balcony is large enough for lounging and dining while taking in the moods of the coast. The top floor landing is bathed in light and ocean breezes from the automated, retractable, Turrell-inspired skylight above the stairwell. Plaster relief details on the illuminated tray ceiling set the tone for a truly serene primary retreat. The principal bedroom has limitless coastline and head-on ocean views, automated shades, a private deck and a spa-like bath with dual closets and bathrooms, radiant heat floors and a free-standing tub. Nestled between the Pacific Palisades and Malibu, the "Palibu" Sunset Mesa location offers easy access to Santa Monica, Silicon Beach and LAX. This custom home, with extensive features and luxury finishes, and income potential, is an incredible investment in well-being, and a lifestyle that equally values work and play.
