Krauze has been the sole owner of this modern-architecture house built in 2011 in the Sunset Park neighborhood. The wide-open floorplan combines traditional style with a very modern flair.

The four-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom, plus office residence encompasses 3,488-square feet and is offered at $3,650,000.

High ceilings and gorgeous natural light create a much-desired warmth throughout the 2-story house, with multiple views of the greenery at nearby Penmar Golf Course. The gourmet kitchen, outfitted with high-end appliances, opens to the family room and backyard via a large opening that gives an inviting indoor/outdoor feel.

Tile flooring covers most of the first level, while hardwood floors are featured on the upper level. A gas fireplace warms the large living room on those cool sea-breeze evenings.

About Luxury Properties Specialist Diana Kassabian

Working in Westside real estate and development the past 18 years has given Diana a broad depth of experience when it comes to selling luxury homes – expertise that builds neatly upon insights gathered over generations. “My great-grandfather was a builder. It had such an impact on me,” she said. As a child, construction was all around her, and when she saw her parents build a house in four months, she was hooked.

Diana’s focus is on helping clients understand every twist and turn of a real estate deal – and making sure they’re comfortable with the process, no matter how complex the transaction. Another is helping buyers envision their ideal home, then putting her design and building background to work in order to bring their vision to reality. Diana’s geographic focus includes the Westside and often goes well beyond, based upon what a client might need. “I’ll go wherever my clients need me,” she says, pointing out this flexibility is a must, given that clients range from local Los Angelinos to those from around the globe.
