Elegantly positioned on one of Santa Monica's most coveted streets with views over Santa Monica Beach, this magnificent home promises all the grand-scale living spaces, European finishes, and California-coastal grounds your luxury-loving heart desires.
What's that, it's in Southern California you say? Well, we know you've been quietly considering a southward escape, but you could also think of this as a vacation home—like your very own resort!
Set behind private gates and surrounded by lush landscaping on over half an acre, this 11,000-square-foot estate—a size no longer possible in the area—has a wraparound motor court with two entrances for a stately approach to what's in store—think new contemporary interiors with a Scandinavian aesthetic.
Awash with light, a dramatic two-story entry replete with towering gallery walls and beautiful onyx floors leads to monumental entertaining spaces, including a sweeping great room with wide-plank, French white oak floors and an oversized fireplace, formal and informal dining rooms, an atrium-like den and gourmet professional kitchen. Cooks will salivate for the induction and gas Gaggenau stoves, built-in steamer Miele ovens, Subzero fridge, and more Viking and Miele appliances.
Sliding glass doors line the living spaces, fostering a seamless connection to the pool and phenomenal grounds. A spacious second level holds an upstairs living lounge, four en suite bedrooms, a light-infused library that could serve as a fifth en suite bedroom, as well as a staggering master suite with a fireplace, private balcony, Italian showroom closet and sophisticated Carrara marble bathroom with an oversized shower and soaking tub. A fully equipped, two-story guesthouse with radiant heated floors holds an additional bedroom/bathroom suite, kitchen, and living area. Further highlights include a substantial indoor spa and two separate three-car garages, with additional parking in the driveway totaling up to approximately 15 cars on the lot.
Primed for entertaining, an expansive, grassy backyard with a new solar-heated pool, outdoor shower and fire pit is surrounded by raised vegetable beds, edible landscaping, and fruit trees. Complete with covered al fresco dining patios and wood decking, this home embodies the quintessential Santa Monica lifestyle, just a short stroll to the beach, Palisades Park, and high-end shops and restaurants on Montana Avenue.
