“Few residences are so groundbreaking in design that they need a name to convey their architectural significance. The Razor House is one of these rare and celebrated masterpieces which has a name that pays homage to a stunning yet treacherous landscape where majestic cliffs meet the infinity of the ocean,” said Laleh Monshizadeh. “When The Razor House was completed in 2007, the property was widely regarded as an architectural marvel. The cinematic nature of its design has made it a highly sought-after filming location and has already been featured in TV commercials for Calvin Klein and Visa Black Card.”
The main home has four bedrooms, four bathrooms and two half bathrooms. White concrete, stainless steel and glass rise in a cantilevered design, offering some of the most panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean. The entertaining spaces have been carefully arranged to take full advantage of the views and maximize the indoor and outdoor connection while offering world-class amenities. All living areas in the main house, including two master suites, the main kitchen and service kitchen, circular living room, family room with three 78-bottle wine cabinets and library, face the ocean view via floor-to-ceiling walls of glass. There are two kitchens; an entertaining kitchen with a Gaggenau cooktop, Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer and Miele dishwasher as well as a restaurant-grade service kitchen with multiple Gagggenau ovens and induction cooktops, a Miele dishwasher and two Sub-Zero refrigerators and freezer. There is also a state-of-the-art screening room with acoustically treated walls and ceiling, tiered floors, a Stewart curved multi‐aspect ratio screen and Christie HD digital projector. Other highlights include more than 6,100 square feet of exterior stone tiled terraces, a black-tiled heated pool and a rooftop entertaining level featuring a stainless-steel spa, heaters and an outdoor kitchen with grill, refrigerator and sink.
“Walled in by sheets of glass, the house is so transparent that you feel as if you are suspended in air, completely surrounded by water,” said Niloo Monshizadeh. “It takes a daring visionary to take a modestly sized, steep oceanfront lot that had been previously declared ‘unbuildable’ and create a masterpiece nestled sensitively into the hillside. Following the Wrightian tradition of organic architecture, Wallace E. Cunningham drew inspiration from the challenging terrain, imagining a dynamic residence spread across the land that takes advantage of its position amid deep canyon, golden sandstone and jagged bluff leading into vast views of the Pacific Ocean.”
