A 1964 Huntington Beach home reimagined in a minimalist modern style is on the market for $2.998 million.
Completed in 2017, this light, airy 2,891-square-foot home has three bedrooms and three bathrooms. Disappearing glass walls open the living room to the outdoors, from the firepit courtyard out front to the pool and spa in the backyard.
The outdoor offerings include a pavilion equipped for cooking, dining and lounging.
“Being able to open everything up was what I wanted, to be able to entertain and have a bottom floor really be kind of like ‘the community floor’ where people can gather,” the homeowner Scott Bailey told Southern California News Group in 2019.
The home also appears in author Francesc Zamora Mola’s “The California Style: Architecture on the Edge in Paradise,” published in 2021.
Property records show Bailey, the founder of the men’s running apparel brand, PATH Projects, picked up the property in 2015 for $880,000 after “stalking” the Huntington Harbour area for a couple of years, he told SCNG.
The house he found needed updating.
Bailey brought in the award-winning Los Angeles-based architecture firm Assembledge+ to redesign the home from the ground up. Only the footprint and roofline of the original house remain, with new vertical cedar and black metal accenting the two-story stucco facade.
Gone is the original carpet in favor of large-scale terrazzo tiles across the entry-level’s common areas, from the living room with its integrated TV, fireplace and built-in bookcases to the dining room.
There’s hardwood flooring on the second floor.
Floating cabinetry separates the dining room from the modern kitchen, with its wall of built-in storage and a cooktop island with breakfast bar seating.
The entry foyer’s steel and terrazzo staircase in a recessed river-rock bed leads upstairs to an intimate family room and the bedrooms, including the primary suite. A skylight in the primary bathroom’s glassed-off shower brings in natural light.
