Midcentury home designed by surf legend Matt Kivlin lists for $2.995 million
Surf legend Matt Kivlin — who’s known for designing the lightweight, Balsa wood-based Malibu Board — also designed a handful of homes along the California coast. In Pacific Palisades, a Midcentury gem he built in 1960 has surfaced for sale at $2.995 million.
That’s about a quarter of a million more than it last sold for in 2018, public records show.
Perched up in the canyons, the mini-compound holds two homes: a two-story main house and a rustic log cabin with remodeled interiors. Bridges, pathways and a pond with a waterfall fill out the landscaped grounds.
A carport approaches the main residence, which features three bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms in about 1,800 square feet. High ceilings, hardwood floors and walls of glass mark the common spaces, including a galley-style kitchen and a living room with a built-in fireplace.
Upstairs, a sleek master suite expands to a private wraparound deck. It overlooks a dining area with a fire pit down below.
Brent Watson and Marco Salari of Coldwell Banker Realty hold the listing.
