J. R. Davidson 1947 Riviera Palisades Mid-Century Modern

1630 Amalfi Drive, Pacific Palisades - J.R.Davidson, 1947 - $4,200,000
Clerestory windows, stone floors, paneled ceiling, recessed lighting, built-in bookcases and glass partition are what greets you upon entry into the J.R. Davidson 1947 Riviera Palisades mid-century-modern design.  Part of the Arts and Architecture group, along with John Entenza and the case study house architects, was J.R. Davidson, the architect behind Case Study House No. 1 and Case Study House No. 11, which has since been torn down. Located at 1630 Amalfi Drive in the Pacific Palisades, this 4 bedroom and 3.5 bathroom home with ocean views is being offered for $4,200,000.
You will have to act fast, and take advantage of the last open house on February 24, as offers are being requested by 12 noon on the 25th.  Custom built-in furniture is found throughout the house, as well as seen here in the living room.  The home offers 2,684 square feet of living space with floor-to-ceiling windows offering lots of natural light. 
With the fireplace dividing the living and dining rooms, I like the way the fireplace stone work wraps around into the dining room.  The home has a wonderful flow with high ceilings.
A large kitchen has a separate eating area and housekeeper's suite adjoining it.
A beautifully appointed office with wood paneling and built-in bookcases and desk is in impeccable condition. 
A separated sleeping wing has 3 spacious-sized bedrooms.
Situated on 18,500+ square feet, the back yard includes and upper and lower terrace.  The upper terrace features outdoor patio areas with views of the Pacific Ocean and gardens, while the lower terrace features a large pool and extremely cute mid-century modern cabana.
This dynamic home is very unassuming from the street, but once you walk inside, you are taken on a wonderful escape.  This truly should not be missed.
