Corona del Mar
Located on a promontory with spectacular views of Little Corona Beach, this home was designed in 1960 by Carl Maston. Situated on a steeply sloping site with dry stack stone walls, the landscape provides places to explore, relax and dine al fresco. Sculptural, hardy, drought-tolerant plants recall forms and colors of marine life in the tide pools below. Brilliantly colored Flax and Aloes provide counterpoints to the soft greens of the surrounding coastal chapparal.
Planting was selected to thrive in conditions of salt spray and wind
