Property description

This Private and Secluded Zen-like 2100 sq ft. 3 bedroom, 2 bath 2 story Home is in the Exclusive Beach neighborhood of 'L.A's Best Kept Secret', Playa del Rey, centrally located to the South Bay Beaches and LA's glamorous city. Enter behind a private gate and journey into this quiet and safe, lushly landscaped tropical refuge. Eastern artifacts, Buddha's, a gurgling fish pond, birdbath, rock garden and a teak bench serenely escort you into this special house, furnished for comfort and healing energy. If you are looking to 'PARTY' this is NOT the home for you. Maximum occupancy is 6 guests.

This unique home is perfect for vacationing families looking for rest or 'LA'S hot action' that's just minutes away.

The clean straight lines of Architecture, inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright, has high wood ceilings and powerful crossbeams. Floor to ceiling glass in the Living Room and Formal Dining area create a spacious and airy setting in this loft style home. Relax, release, and chill out on the Futon Style Loungers.


Dine 'alfresco', year round, on sumptuous local fresh seafood or BBQ your favorite culinary delights from nearby Bristol Farms, the famous gourmet food shop. Let the Southern California sunshine energize your day during breakfast in the Formal dining area that accommodates 8 on the Cherry Wood Asian Dining table. Custom Tile Counter top seats 4 more with bar stools. Sip an espresso, gourmet tea, smoothie, or fresh squeezed lemonade from the tree in the garden. KEURIG single cup coffee/tea dispenser, Toaster, Coffee Maker and Blender are all included with the Full Kitchen.

Ascend through the carpeted 'Low-Rise' stairwell with high ceilings, bamboo-screened windows and Asian styled architecture lighting. A bamboo plant and more lush decorations lead the way to the 2nd floor restorative rest area.

The Master Bedroom has wall-to-wall sliding Shoji Screens. Close them for privacy or open them to the Living Area below or dreamily gaze through the huge glass windows into the Zen Garden. Rejuvenate on the comfy Queen Size Bed. The Master Bath has shoji doors and windows, double sinks, a glass shower stall, and 2 large closets with sliding full length mirrors that make dressing a pleasure.

Enjoy the California Sunset and a partial view of the Pacific Ocean from the front upstairs Bedroom that sleeps 2 on a Queen Size Bed. The Bamboo-screened front wall of glass overlooks the semi-private park directly across the street. Mirrored closets here as well.

For your comfort and enjoyment, read, sip some coffee, wine, or tea, or even take a nap on the Private Balcony of the rear bedroom that sleeps 2 on a Queen Size Bed also with mirrored closets and a 32' Flat Screen TV.

Soothe yourself to a candlelight bath in the decorated FULL Bathroom behind Bamboo-screened windows of the second floor.

Enter through Sliding Glass Doors from the Living Area or walk the plant covered latticed path on the side of the house to the sanctitude of the green-growth covered Hi-walled Back Yard. Relax and Lounge in the backyard under the shade of tall trees surrounded by more lush tropical plants, or feed the squirrels and watch the hummingbirds as they flutter throughout the Zen Garden.
