This community sits atop the breathtaking Palos Verde Peninsula with expansive views of the broad Los Angeles Basin and the Pacific Ocean. A fresh take on contemporary ranch, these homes were inspired by the original ranch-style houses of the 50s and 60s.

The approach to the great room from the foyer is full of natural light with direct access to two side courtyards. Sliding doors off the courtyards into the great room, office, and dining area can be opened to create a seamless transition between interior and outdoor spaces and a connection throughout the common areas of this plan.

At the second floor, a bonus room is separated from the bedrooms and a small second laundry room is provided for convenience. The three-car garage is hidden from the front elevation to place emphasis on the main entry.

From the Judges
Judges noted that the elevation is lovely, and the entire home has a lightness and brightness to it that makes it successful. The detailing, including the kitchen island detail and metal brackets on the trusses in the main living areas, are well done. Judges also liked that the master suite is tucked away in the back. The garage is so well-handled that you’d never know it has a three-car garage.
