Home of the Week: New Michael Lee coastal contemporary in Palisades Riviera

High architectural drama meets intimate ambience in this just-finished home in the sought-after Riviera section of Pacific Palisades. 
From the outside, floating roofs soar over striking walls of stone, glass and Perla Blanca shell stone. On the main level, floor-to-ceiling glass doors erase the line between the open plan gourmet kitchen and great room and a blissful outdoor sanctuary with grassy lawn, pool, sundeck, entertaining patio, fire pit and BBQ kitchen. 
A floating staircase leads to the sunlit upper level, where a sleek master retreat (one of six bedroom suites) is enhanced by ocean glimpses, an airy balcony and a spa-like bath. The lower level features a bar and climate-controlled wine cellar, a theater, and a gym/yoga studio. 
Nestled high above the sea and below the Santa Monica Mountains between Santa Monica and Malibu, Pacific Palisades has long attracted celebrities with its charm and tranquility. Cool sea breezes, easy beach access and a wealth of spectacular sunsets make it the ideal setting for this singular home.
The dramatic three-level, 10,000 square foot residence at 770 Amalfi Drive, moments from the Riviera Country Club, is listed by Pence
Hathorn Silver at $15,999,000.
