A Palos Verdes gem with Pacific Ocean views is a modern-day getaway
Perched high on a hill in the most sought-after Lunada Bay community in Palos Verdes Estates is a contemporary classic. Notable for being near the area’s top public and private schools, the award winning Terranea Resort and breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean, one could think of 1376 Via Romero as a private oasis. With a luscious stucco exterior, Terracotta roof tiles, and subtle landscaping that entices with an alluring simplicity, it’s the thoughtful adornments that add a touch of elegance and frame the overall look of the home.
With just over 10,000 square feet of living space, and a maximized open concept inverse floor plan, a home of this caliber offers a family-friendly design that’s also ideal for those who enjoy entertaining. Built ahead of its time, with a modern-day remodel, the overall essence of this six-bedroom, eight-bathroom abode is a timeless embrace. With 180 degrees of unobstructed ocean views, along with 25-foot floor-to-ceiling windows that pristinely line both levels of the residence, there’s no question that former New York Giants Super Bowl champion, Antonio Pierce, called this au courant property home.
“As soon as you walk in the door, the place just has that wow factor,” says Jocelyn Pierce, wife of Antonio Pierce and representative of Vista Sotheby’s International Realty. It’s a quality that continues as you make your way through the home. The geometrically shaped living room is both expansive and inviting. Accents include lofty vaulted ceilings, wood beams, and brilliantly articulated skylights that let in natural ambient lighting. Located off the living room is a stylishly modern European-inspired kitchen with an ambiance of its own. Highlights here include top-of-the-line appliances, beautiful Caesarstone countertops, flat-panel cabinetry, and a large wrap-around balcony as an amenity to the space. The generously-sized master suite, meanwhile, is a true getaway, with two-story closet space, an en-suite master bathroom with heated floors, a steam shower, and a private wrap-around balcony that embraces far-reaching and picturesque views.
In contrast to the main floor, the downstairs area holds a more intimate living space that includes private bedrooms, an updated home office, a game room, wine cellar, and state-of-the-art gym. All this incentivizes one to stay put. However, the property’s outdoor entertainment area also entices with a vast patio space quintessential for enjoying the awe-inspiring ocean scenery, along with a full-sized regulation tennis court oriented from north to south, and a half basketball court.
In all, this private oasis is a Palos Verdes gem, meticulously designed with contemporary appeal, expansive views and lavish essentials galore.
