Home of the Week: Hidden in the details in Pacific Palisades


A few stealthy features hide among the modern comforts and traditional design at this newly built residence in the Palisades Riviera section of Pacific Palisades.

Crisp white wainscoting, coffered ceilings and subdued hues, as well as a glass-enclosed wine cellar tucked inconspicuously beneath the stairs, are among the eye-catching details. In one area of the home, built-in bookshelves conceal a secret door that opens to hidden office.
