Here’s some lovely daydream fodder to help enliven a dull afternoon. Known as the DeVault Residence, this little slice of heaven was designed in 1958 by Herbert Kameon, an architect who worked in the offices of Richard Neutra and A. Quincy Jones before establishing his own firm.
Kameon’s projects included the Mutual Housing Association development in Crestwood Hills, and the Sunset Strip hotel now known as the Standard. This seaside home in Malibu is believed to be Kameon’s first residential commission, and has been owned by the same family since being built six decades ago.
On a .84-acre lot in Malibu’s Big Rock neighborhood, the redwood-sheathed residence has five bedrooms, three baths, beamed ceilings, hardwood floors, built-in furniture and shelving, and copious windows and glass walls to take advantage of the spectacular views.
Along with dramatic boulders, the well-manicured grounds contain a swimming pool, spa, koi pond, and sizable grassy lawn.
The property is listed with an asking price of $3.195 million.
