Thornton Montaigne Abell designed this International Modern Style home for himself in 1937. Although it was extensively published by the time it hit the market in 2012 it was in terrible shape. The description read, “the property “is in need of major repair and the later guesthouse addition should be considered a tear-down.”

To return the home to being a fine example of mid-century modern architecture the owners enlisted the help of noted architect Scott Prentice.

And if that’s not enough the home is located on a double lot measuring over 12,000 square feet in the coveted Santa Monica Canyon. It’s also so close to the beach you can hear the waves at night. I love hearing the waves. It makes me sleep like a baby. That makes three things I’ll leave the Eastside for.

This home last sold in 2012 for $1,650,000. The current list price is $3,700,000.
