Bird’s-eye views—and views of birds
Located in the neighborhood’s Moreno Highlands section, the cantilevered residence was designed from the ground up by Dublin-born architect Lorcan O’Herlihy in 2000.
Measuring 1,976 square feet, the two-story house has a horizontal first floor that encompasses an open-plan living room, kitchen, dining room, and office, with a small guest room and second office tucked behind the kitchen.
The home’s vertical second floor comprises the master suite.
Features include bamboo floors, concrete countertops, a living room fireplace, sliding room dividers, built-in shelving and cabinetry, transom windows, and multiple balconies and patios.
As the home is sited high on its hillside lot, its future tenants will need to be able to reckon with climbing lots of stairs on a daily basis. But as a trade-off for all that huffing and puffing, they’ll get awe-inspiring views as well as toned glutes.
They’ll also need to be able to pay a sky-high rent: $6,250 per month, to be exact.
