Unforgettable tranquility and privacy await behind the gates with this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Reported to be the highest elevation single family residence on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, enjoy unobstructed views of the Pacific Ocean's never-ending horizon all to yourself. Walking inside, the experience is spiritual, enveloped by the elements of light and space resulting from the stunning mid-century architectural design capturing the dramatic location with glowing sunsets over the Pacific, white water waves crashing into the terrain far below, distant views of the Santa Monica Mountains and glistening vistas of downtown Los Angeles. The expansive kitchen and bar open into the vaulted-ceiling dining and living rooms, lined with glass, overlooking the Pacific as you prepare your meals morning, noon and sunset. This single level floorplan designed in the 1950s by architect J. Richard Shelley feels decades ahead of its time, with today’s desired open floorplan, custom honey-hued millwork, expansive decks and earth-toned palette. Palos Verdes stone was mined to build the fireplace and walkway. This is a nature lover’s paradise, for the marine land, wildlife, ever-changing landscape of the ocean, diverse vegetation and for the imagination to be awakened in all that visit. The exposure to the elements be it wind, salt air, sweeping rain or dense fog, the elevation crests so high that often when the South Bay is enveloped by marine layer the sun glistens on the land at this altitude. You pass residents on horseback aside the oscillating hills. Peacocks roam. The environs are serene with idyllic white ranches scattered about. As you turn up Flying Mane Road, your ears pop. Situated as the only home at the end of the cul-de-sac, this is the first time it has been available on the market since the land was sold in the early 1950s. Additionally, there is a detached bonus room nestled into the hillside below to truly getaway and pursue inspiration. The sloping terroir sweeps down toward the ocean, possibly ripe for a vineyard. The mid-century modern design hugs the land and coast, drawing nature inward and providing a scintillating experience of levitation within the balance of ocean and sky. Your paradise is found.
