This house is the result of a husband-and-wife home team: Sven Simon is the Managing Partner of Funf Ventures, which develops design-driven real estate. Sven’s wife, Sara Simon, founder of interior design firm Handsome Salt, created this colorful coastal home which is located on one of the highest ridge lines in all of Malibu, California. Perched at an elevation of 2,400 feet, this home has once-in-a-lifetime 360-degree ocean/city/mountain views.

Yeronga House is a project designed by Lisa Breeze Architect. What a treat! A blank canvas to create a new family home.

Fun fact: the towers once served as watchtowers for a nearby castle to look out for pirates coming in from the sea. Photography by Hector Jensen Pie.
