    Property Details

    We work in boxes, so why should we live in them? Here's your chance to live outside the box in a Leon Meyer designed home. Known as King of the Round House,' Leon created a series of bold circular designs and this one of thirty! Dave Weinstein of CA Modern Magazine wrote, 'In modern houses in the round we find a sense of joy, whimsy, an openness to the out of doors, a revolt against the machined aesthetic of mainstream modernism, a striving for a better life brought on by homes that are more like living beings than dead boxes.' This is definitely no dead box! Let's get down to the nitty gritty about this rare home and her story. She's perched on one of the highest points on the hill in Gum Grove park, with a rooftop deck that we believe has THE MOST stunning view of any home here. Built in 1970 in one of the most sought after neighborhoods in Seal beach, this is the first time in 33 years that this unique dwelling has hit the market. She's a very special home filled with so much love and memories from the incredible family that has raised their kids here. Because this home is not a box and not filled with walls and compartmental darkness, its plexiglass windows effortlessly keep the shape of the two circular living spaces and showcase the indoor/outdoor organic vibes in every room throughout the entire house. A huge perk '” you won't ever get lost! Just keep walking in circles! :) The neighborhood is just as remarkable as this dwelling. This is a community of 810 homes filled with neighbors that seem to never want to leave this gem of an area. Everyone knows everyone, and its known for the best trick-or-treating and magical firework shows. You have prime access to shopping and dining Downtown, you're surrounded by beaches and a wildlife refuge, close to freeways '” really, what more could you want? Act fast or you'll never forgive yourself from missing out on enjoying your evenings on the rooftop deck with hors d'oeuvres and libations while witnessing beautiful sunsets and watching ships sail into the harbor. This. Is. The. Life.
