Untitled-1The newly-renovated, custom estate at 2121 La Mesa was featured last week as the Wall Street Journal’s “House of the Day.”

Located on the most coveted street in Santa Monica, the meticulously renovated contemporary estate captures breathtaking views of the Riviera Golf Course and surrounding mountains from the moment you enter. The 9,296 square-foot home boasts 5 spacious, bedrooms, all en-suite and most with stunning views and private balconies, along with two separate upper wings and a host of upscale amenities.


‘The street itself is very prized and the house is kind of a unicorn,” Sandra Brass told the WSJ. “It’s contemporary, which is unusual on the west side of L.A., and it has spaces with lots of volume and drama.”

As the WSJ points out, the home was originally built in 1981 for Steel Magnolias and Footloose director Herbert Ross, but has undergone major renovations since then and is now quite contemporary. “Part of the most-recent renovation was to ‘shake some of the ‘80s’ off, Ms. Brass says. ‘There wasn’t a single spot of the house we didn’t touch.” The home is currently listed for $23 million.
