3731 Barkentine Rd., Rancho Palos Verdes, CA 90275
Towering over the Pacific Ocean with its giant, sweeping white water, ocean, Catalina Island, and canyon views, Villa Barkentine is a stunning mid-century modern architecture beach home now ready for film and production use. Located at the end of a cul de sac with only nature preserve land surrounding it, the property is secluded and private, two qualities film productions always look for. Designed in 1964 by architect Foster Rhodes Jackson, a fellow of Frank Lloyd Wright, Villa Barkentine is possibly one of the purest modern architectural designs in Palos Verdes. The house features breathtaking sea views from just about every room, with large balconies and natural light enhancing the 240-degree ocean and canyon views.
Situated on the sunny side of the peninsula, Villa Barkentine is within walking distance to the beach, world-class Terranea Resort, and Palos Verdes nature and hiking trails. This Eco friendly home features a full electrical solar system, a large 2-car garage with ready electric car charging for Tesla, etc., central a/c and heat, power sun awnings and living room shade, new Viking kitchen, and new bathrooms.
Its secluded location with gorgeous ocean views gives Villa Barkentine a Zen vibe. It's hard to imagine this gorgeous mid-century modern home is just 30-45 min to Downtown Los Angeles, LAX, Manhattan Beach, Silicon Beach, Long Beach and Orange County. Last but not least, Villa Barkentine comes with plenty of parking for production crew and equipment.
