Sunia Homes are back, baby! After making a splash with their first, highly celebrated Dwell on Design Tour home at 915 Rosemont Avenue in Echo Park, Jerome Pelayo of Sunia Homes and Rocking Horse Redevelopment — individually and collaboratively — bring you two new homes, 3244 and 3248 Descanso Drive. Yes, technically that is Silver Lake territory, but seeing as how Sunia Homes got their start in EP, it’s worth a write-up. Today we focus our attention on the larger (and pricier) of the two — 3244 Descanso Drive, created by Rocking Horse and designed by Sunia.
A trademark of Sunia + Rocking Horse is their combined ability to effortlessly blend modern design with modern efficiency. For an asking price of $1.169MM you not only get a beautifully constructed 3 bedroom, 3 bath hilltop architectural with city views, but one that seamlessly blends in with the latest in green design — including solar panels, rain barrels (they’ll eventually come in handy), structurally insulated panel (SIP) construction, drought tolerant plants, and more to put your environmental conscience at ease.
Mangaris wood accented walls help to break the main living area down into 3 separate, yet open spaces. Wide plank oak floors (that washed out grey is impressive!), steel display walls, and ceiling-to-floor windows provide an array of textures, and flood the area with natural light. A wraparound balcony makes it that much easier to enjoy sunset views and city lights.
The respectable kitchen and dining area comes equipped with a substantially sized island, top-shelf energy-efficient Bosch appliances, and PaperStone countertops. (Note: PaperStone is made from 100% post-consumer recycled paper and it feels anything but.)
Making your way upstairs, you’ll find a luminous landing — oh, the ingenious skylight — with a wide landing and access to the generous en suite master and two very usable guest bedrooms.
Judging from this example, it’s clear that Sunia’s first home was more than just a fluke. More than that, it makes us take notice that Sunia + Rocking Horse is looking to leave a lasting impression on the design landscape of Los Angeles.
