Alice Plato, an affiliate agent with the Venice Main Street office of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, has listed the Playa Del Rey property for $2,279,000. Located at 7811 Berger Ave. in Playa Del Rey, Calif., the three-bedroom, three-bathroom and approximately 3,000-square-foot home was built in 1982 by architect Frank Dimster, a University of Southern California professor emeritus and author of "The New Austrian Architecture,” and was recently redone by owner and architect-designer John Pugliese.
“This architectural house is a prime example of the innovative Austrian post-modern architecture of the 1980s that was being expressed in Vienna in new housing developments and residential buildings and brought to the U.S. by Dimster and others,” said Plato.
“This is quintessential California living! On the coveted North Bluff near the vibrant technological hub of Silicon Beach and the charming small beach town of Playa del Rey, this property is Los Angeles' ultimate skybox, overlooking the marina, Malibu and the Ballona Wetlands,” said Plato. “With a view of the Los Angeles basin below, this home has been perfectly reimagined and designed for living, dining, entertaining, working or relaxing indoors or outside.”
On the North Bluff of Playa del Rey, the home encompasses a living room with a wet bar and a dual-sided fireplace, an ocean view studio office or gym, den with a fireplace and two roof decks with a fireplace and jacuzzi spa with views of the ocean, wetlands and city lights. Open to the family room, the cook's kitchen features a quartz island, stainless steel appliances and an adjacent Brazilian walnut dining area. Upstairs, the master bedroom offers two walk-in closets, access to the rooftop deck and a bathroom with a spa bathroom with a glass shower and dual sinks. The grounds include a patio with a fireplace, putting green, zen fountain and grilling area.
