Richard Manion Architecture’s version of the California Mediterranean Revival homes that were built in Southern California in the early 20th century. This remodeled residence borrows features from Spanish and Italian regional architecture without trying to be a faithful reproduction. The loggia and faux painted treatments are a nod to Italian influences, while the simple architectural detailing, paving and Moorish-style fountain reflect California’s Spanish heritage. The loggia, complete with fireplace and television, is used as an outdoor living room. Concealed behind the fireplace is a secret stairway that leads up to the master terrace, which is a sunny and private retreat overlooking the pool. While the entertainment rooms are grand and ornate, the family areas are more rustic and casual.
