This property’s location – near Metlox Plaza in Manhattan Beach – was a big part of its appeal. The client, who has strong ties to his native Italy, loved the idea of strolling over to his local “piazza” for a bite and a drink and some social time. Woven into the home are Italian touches such as the artwork, materials and classic details.

sunny corner

In the kitchen, a breakfast table and custom corner banquette invite guests to linger over espresso and biscotti.

welcome home

This client travels often for business, and frequently hosts guests when home, so the bedrooms are furnished with luxury linens, cozy throws and generous piles of pillows . Outside (see Gallery) the backyard is party-ready and features a custom BBQ, lap pool, string lighting, and a pergola with fire pit and TV.
