Nestled into the hillside of the Santa Monica Canyon, the 2019 Sunset Idea House is the quintessence of living where the city meets the seas. To blur the barriers between outdoors and in, homeowner and Santa Monica native Gary Hewson designed the multilevel space to invite in the thriving flora that envelops the property. The resulting home is a right-sized experiment in Southern California living. Watch our social channels for more details.
