Cliffside Luxury Mansion With The Ocean View in California

There are certain houses that look ready-made for a movie scene, Hollywood-glam exuding from every picturesque view or over-the-top fountain. And that’s the case with this six-bedroom, eight-bath home designed by one of Architectural Digest’s Top 100 Designers, Wallace E. Cunningham. Fittingly called the Razor House after the point on which it rests, the cantilevered property perches on seaside cliffs with panoramic ocean vistas. The building is a multi-level blend of white polished concrete, functional steel supports, and glass, all with bespoke luxury thrown in. Equipped with a state-of-the-art automation system, you can control the music, video, light, and shade system all via iPad.

Floor-to-ceiling glass walls look onto a plethora of outdoor spaces, filled with infinity swimming pools, fire pits, Travertine stone floors, and private terraces. The list of luxury amenities in the almost 10,240-square-foot home – and an additional 1,300-square-foot guest house – is endless; there’s an outdoor kitchen, a spa, a movie theater, an exercise room, and a five-car garage. But it all plays second fiddle to the expansive ocean, a focal point throughout. It’s a home with over-the-top ambitions, made for billionaires, movie stars. And it is on the market now for $30 million. Also be sure to check other house with a view to the ocean – Topanga.

Topanga – Modern House With a Nice view in California

On this beautiful plateau, high on a ridge of the Santa Monica Mountains overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the intention was to respond with an elemental design that strengthens a connection to nature on a vast scale while navigating the natural topography and sculptural rock outcroppings with deft precision. The most significant move was the placement of the 14 board-formed concrete bearing walls that emerge from the mountain topography to define a modest dwelling in two volumes. The L-shaped main house, balanced between airy slope and earthbound plain, forms a courtyard with the massive rock and infinity pool while the studio/carport aligns across the site establishing a powerful horizontal reference. Steel wide flange beams, anchored to the inside face of each concrete wall, form floating horizontal slabs that support steel joists and conditioned air distribution. Communicating between these slabs, and frequently pulling in from the perimeter to form exterior decks, is a handmade enclosure of metal frames in-filled with wood and glass and solid wood interior partitions that define the home’s private and service spaces. The material palette is intentionally constrained to minimize distraction and harmonize experience. Slatted screen doors and exterior shades modulate sunlight while ground-source heat pumps, supported by eight geothermal wells and 3 pole mounted solar arrays provide conditioned air.
