Ray Kappe's Scheimer Residence in Manhattan Beach

New, 30 comments

A Ray Kappe-designed home in Manhattan Beach, a three-bedroom, four and half bath residence built in 1985 has hit the market. South Bay magazine profiled the home late last year and provides all the color commentary: "With homage to the curvilinear lines of 1940’s Streamline Moderne and Richard Neutra’s use of curved forms, Kappe’s design playfully evokes a glamorous passenger ship, with a “cockpit” canopy covering the private staircase leading from the master suite to the roof top deck. Kappe’s design makes abundant use of floor to ceiling windows throughout to take full advantage of the vistas... Due to building restrictions enacted later, it is no longer possible to build a house of this size on a similar lot in Manhattan Beach..." They're asking $13.5 million.
