Unobstructed Riviera Views With a Midcentury Architectural Pedigree

The Riviera view home at 960 Roble Lane was originally built by Alex D’Alfonso as his personal residence in the early 1960s. It was completely remodeled in 2019, with a nod to the midcentury styling of the period, while still retaining the characteristic D’Alfonso details and hand-crafted sandstone walls. No detail was overlooked, from the authentic midcentury Gerald Thurston pendant lights and wall sconces to the quarter sawn white oak floor, finished on site.

The main living area of the home, with vaulted ceiling, includes the living room, dining area, and kitchen. Oversize south-facing windows look to the panoramic view over the city towards the harbor, ocean, and islands, with no wires or poles in the sightline. The living room includes a fireplace with travertine marble surround, and the dining area has a built-in banquette and chairs with room for eight.

The kitchen is outfitted with William Ohs custom cabinetry, soapstone counters, and Pratt + Larson tiled backsplash. The substantial island is the central focus, with plenty of room for cooking and entertaining, and a charming Dutch door opens to the back patio for alfresco dining. Appliances include a Wolf range with double ovens, four burners and a French cooktop; Subzero refrigerator; and Miele dishwasher. The large laundry room is adjacent to the kitchen and includes pantry, cabinets, and built-in desk area.

The spacious primary bedroom suite located on the east side of the home has a large view window with ocean and city views looking towards the Mission. There’s custom walnut cabinetry in the bathroom, with marble counters and dual sinks. The shower is large enough for two, with separate shower controls on either side. Warm floors for cold mornings, Kallista nickel faucets, a separate water closet, and walk-in closet complete the area.

The guest room, on the west side of the home, also has a large picture window with sweeping views. There is a walk-in closet, an en-suite bath with large soaking tub, and Walker Zanger hand-painted tiles. A separate exterior door leads to the side yard.

The property is conveniently located close to town and just a short distance to the Riviera Theatre and El Encanto hotel. There’s plenty of street parking, as well as a two-car garage and gentle sloping driveway. There is also A/C and a home alarm system.

960 Roble Lane, offered for $2,750,000, will be open this Saturday and Sunday, 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., or to schedule a visit for another time, contact Team Regan at Compass at 805-895-2760 or [email protected].
