"Palos Verdes Resident since 1947"

A Rare Frank Lloyd Wright, Jr, House For Sale! Now in Escrow

In the pantheon of great 20th Century architects is Frank Lloyd Wright, Jr, designer of the iconic Wayfarer’s Chapel and of the 3 remaining Palos Verdes homes of his creation, of which 20 Narcissa Drive is one.  Being offered for sale for the first time since being designed and built in 1949 for Cecil B DeMille’s famous costume and set designer Ralph Jester and his wife Lois, this masterpiece of mid-Century organic architecture sits on grounds of 35,000+ square feet with an unobstructed view of the Pacific, the Palos Verdes coastline, and Catalina Island.  The sensation of privacy and seclusion is not sacrificed for the view; in fact, one has no sense from the street that this magnificent house is even there.  This is a one level home that includes a generous living room with a wrap-around, panoramic view, formal dining room, period kitchen, separate family room, and a grand, mid-century master suite opening onto a private garden, plus two more bedrooms with adjoining bath.  This home has been well-preserved by the original owners, with no intervening, incongruous remodel fads allowed to intrude.  This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity not to be missed.
