Home of the Week: A masterful expression of coastal modern living

A masterful expression of California modern living born from years of meticulous planning and craftsmanship, this new architectural triumph from Gunderson Matkins, in collaboration with O+ L building projects, is sited on a rare and flat near-acre property in the coveted Riviera section of Pacific Palisades. 
Soaring walls of glass in nearly every room of the three-level, 13,777 square foot home frame panoramic canyon and mountain views, while striking walnut floors and board-form concrete provide a canvas for the quintessential California lifestyle.  
A spectacular 1,750 square foot master suite positioned for maximum privacy and ocean views includes a private terrace, fireplace, opulent dual bathrooms and closets with a three story elevator descending to a seasonal wardrobe closet. The property features four additional en-suite bedrooms, staff quarters, safe room and a spacious guest villa with two bedrooms, a living room and spacious terrace.
Designed for both large-scale entertaining and intimate affairs, an impressive formal living room and dining room are complemented by a gourmet chef’s kitchen with 16-foot island, and separate butler’s kitchen and pantry. 
Flowing from the kitchen is a grand family room presenting expansive views to the pool terrace and canyon beyond. Other notable highlights include a magnificent floating staircase with an enlarged landing that serves as a formal library with a 15-foot high built-in bookcase, a state-of-the-art home theater, wine cellar, wellness studio with treatment room, sauna and exercise terrace, and seven-car motor court garage with an additional two-car carport.
Thoughtfully landscaped to offer supreme seclusion amidst natural beauty and an unparalleled outdoor haven rivaling the finest resort, the property’s sprawling grounds boasts a cascading entry garden and fountain, 50-foot pool with spa, four outdoor fireplaces and a fire pit, level grassy lawn, regulation Bocce court and array of dining and entertaining terraces. 
Equestrian and stable-ready with direct access to Will Rogers State Park, the property is a rare architectural offering in a thoroughly natural environment.
1143 Ravoli Drive is offered at $26,750,000 by Hugh Evans III and Randy Forbes, Jr.
