If you live in Pacific Palisades, Los Angeles or have even driven on Sunset to get to Pacific Coast Highway chances are you have noticed this architectural landmark of a house that hangs in solus above the bluff as you take the turn up to Chautauqua.

This concrete and wood gem is the work of former architect and builder Robert Bridges. He bought the property in 1979 for $40,000, “At the time, it was the only thing I could afford,” shares Bridges. That is what I call being in the right place at the right time.

 

There is a really great article about the history and process of the house that you can read on the New York Times.
