1. 2009 La Mesa Dr., Santa Monica (above)

Allow the calming views to wash over you as you basque in a lounge chair here at 2009 La Mesa Dr., toes dangling in the flush-edge infinity pool. Overlooking the Riviera Country Club, this pool shares space with a sunken hot tub allowing for daytime swim sessions to effortlessly transition to night. Adjacent you’ll find a large, grassy area providing plenty of outdoor entertaining possibilities. With 11,000 square feet of living space, incuding a state-of-the-art recording studio occupying the top floor of this impressive estate, there are plenty of places to towel off—and record an album.
