Welcome to The Harbor Master’s House, a unique and charming 1939 vintage home in the “red-tile roof” section of Miraleste in Rancho Palos Verdes.
There’s privacy galore within the walls of this mini-estate. You’ll immediately be struck by the stunning architectural detail – walls of curved glass overlook the the beautiful Los Angeles Harbor. Legend has it this home was designed for the LA Harbor Master’s family to watch for him returning home from sea! From the moment you approach the front door, this home is enchanting and decorator perfect in every detail. As you step into the living room, your eyes will first wander to the stunning view, then you’ll soak in the warmth of beautiful wood floors, and a gorgeous fireplace with a distressed wood mantle. The kitchen and dining room are steps away, and invite you in to share in a hearty meal. Cooking in this lovely kitchen won’t be a chore with its convenient layout, Viking stove and Subzero refrigerator and abundant storage.
The master suite is a private spa – following the circular lines of the home, this room is unique. Lots of windows let the sunshine in, yet lush greenery provides the serenity you deserve. A fireplace warms the room, and is visible from the spacious and earthy master bath. A double vanity and oversized tub/shower offer plenty of room for two, and there’s added storage as well. A well-appointed walk-in closet is the icing on the cake. Ascend the vintage concrete stairs with original iron railings, and find 4 additional generous bedrooms, and a stunningly remodeled bathroom.
Exploring the grounds, you’ll find a beautiful “summer house” with a fireplace and tall wood-beamed ceilings which is perfect for gatherings, artist studio, home office or just a quiet place to relax. Working from home is a true pleasure here with yet more spectacular views! A spacious deck (approx. 600 sq. ft.) is the perfect place to host your summer soiree and take in more of the amazing panoramic view! The sprawling lot is nearly 18,000 sq. ft. with a flat grassy area, and a hillside area completely terraced and dotted with fruit trees – your own private orchard! Tucked away on a cul-de-sac street, this amazing home is still close enough to the freeway, beach cities and everything you need, but a world away from it all.
