Modern California Home in Santa Monica inspired by trees ...

The LA Times recently featured the fabulous home in the Sunset Park neighborhood of Santa Monica, California, aptly dubbed King House. This palatial home – truly fit for a king – was designed by John Friedman Alice Kimm Architects with an eye for detail and a modern twist. Inspired by light permeating leafy trees, the home’s unique exterior of green and white is a fitting introduction to this fresh, modern design. The house itself is positioned at the back of the lot, providing plenty of greenspace while highlighting the home’s interesting L-shaped configuration. Expansive windows and floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors flood this large space with the warm daylight, while a front outdoor patio invites al fresco living. Inside, this four-bedroom, four-bathroom home boasts lots of cool surprises – a great kitchen with a skylight; a comfortable yet professional home office; a temperature-controlled wine cellar tucked under the stairwell; a luxurious spa-inspired master bathroom; and of course, the outdoor living spaces with priceless views.
