Paul McClean, who has designed several past and current listings of Hilton & Hyland’s, is unique in his field of contemporary design. McClean’s firm, the eponymous McClean Design, specializes in the design of contemporary homes, and has completed numerous houses in Laguna Beach and Los Angeles in the last ten years. Their stated mission is to foster “an interest in modern living and a desire to connect our clients to the beauty of the surrounding natural environment.” On Tanager Way in the Bird Streets neighborhood is one of Drew Fenton and Tyrone McKillen’s current listings designed by McClean.
The home exemplifies all that is McClean, and the taste and class that are hallmarks of Hilton & Hyland’s style: A two-wing, J-shaped residence benefits from a secure entrance courtyard highlighted by a glass-walled bridge that crosses over a water feature below and into a dramatic combined living and dining area. True to McClean’s style, the home makes extensive use of glazing systems to maximize views and provides a warm, light-filled contemporary space. In the past, Fenton & McKillen have also listed 31696 Sea Cliff Drive, a McClean masterpiece located two houses from the water on the west side of Pacific Coast Highway.
The home, which was recently completed, has views from almost every room with floor to ceiling glass walls that open to the ocean breeze and sunset vistas. It also includes Portuguese Limestone and white oak flooring, smart technology that controls all aspects of the home through a smartphone and iPad, along with a beautiful white Carrera marble kitchen with Euro style cabinetry and top of the line appliances. On Stradella Road in Bel-Air, Michael LaMontagna and Williams & Williams currently have listed the just-completed modern masterpiece, another one of Hilton & Hyland’s current listings by McClean.
The seamless integration between luxury and utility, featuring sweeping panoramic city views beyond compare, the home is an unprecedented multisensory experience, the true pinnacle of McClean’s style. Every inch of this seven bedroom, 12 bathroom architectural dream home exhibits sharp attention to fine detail and composition. McClean is among many architects who provide exquisite homes that are the very definition of contemporary, modern, and sleek style, part of Los Angeles’ constantly evolving design scene.
