Exclusively Representing in Southern California Michael D. Phillips 310.927.9189 Crosby Doe 310.428.6755 Julia Hodges 310.880.1070 Westwood Full Service Highrise with Ocean Views 3 bedrooms, 4 baths $5,325,000 3 bedrooms, 2 baths $3,895,000 Godfredsen-Sigal Architects - The John Baldessari House #1, 1903-2000 10800 Wilshire Blvd #1503, Westwood, CA 90024 2623 3rd Street, Santa Monica, California 90405 Nadel Architects - The Californian, 2006 Elegantly remodeled premier ocean-view unit at The Californian, the best L.A. high-rise from the 'Oughts' (2000- 2010). An ingenious combination of Art Deco detailing and a modernist glass curtain wall, high-floor units here offer panoramic vistas that few Manhattan tower-dwellers can even dream of. On the clearest days, the eye scans from rooftops southwards out toward Palos Verdes and Long Beach; east to Century City and the DTL A skyline beyond; and out west to the waves of the Pacific. Nothing but floor-to-ceiling glass (when the sleek modernist blinds are raised) separates one from a vast panorama of Los Angeles. Sliding doors here access a large balcony running the entire length of the room, grounding the vistas. First offering: After laid back living in his 2 story early Santa Monica Craftsman influenced home for nearly ten years, artist John Baldessari needed more space, more light, and more creatively exciting living space. He hired Ron Godfredsen and Danna Sigal, Architects to expand and bring a modern ambience to the house. A Wrightian influenced addition with eat-in kitchen, and a library above was added at the rear, the exteriors were perforated with skylights and light windows that seem to give a tip of the hat to James Turrell's work in Venice. Roy McMakin completed the vision with custom made furniture (some of which may be available for separate purchase). While now modern, the character of the original Craftsman style is still referenced with exterior matching lap siding, and the retention of many interior period details. The residence is set in a garden with an olive grove, grassy yard, and exotic plantings, and includes open plan public spaces, library, three bedrooms, two baths, and laundry.
