This Pacific Palisades, California home takes advantage of its canyon side positioning for its height, green surroundings and view. Designed by Los Angeles architecture firm Johnston Marklee its striking white facade studded with windows creates visual interest against the setting. Due to the houses positioning on the hill, one has to enter in order to fully appreciate the size of the 3,300 sq. ft home.

Studded with skylights and windows, the house offers views of the horizon and the open floor plan offers viewers from inside the house maximum views from several vantage points within the home. The lay of the interior is a plus for those who enjoy entertaining for larger groups of people. An upper loft provides a library and a more intimate atmosphere for smaller groups or just two.
