With the coveted Santa Monica lifestyle in high demand, a new boutique residential offering making its debut in the heart of the seaside community captures its vibrant spirit, casual vibe and outdoorsy lifestyle. Recently featured in Mansion Global as the newest eco-friendly residential offering in “Silicon Beach”, AIRE Santa Monica presents a collection of 19 modern residences situated around a central, open-air courtyard. Garden-level flats and multi-story townhomes feature bright, breezy interiors that seamlessly extend to private outdoor living spaces.
“AIRE was designed to cater to the sophisticated buyer who covets a place that speaks to Santa Monica, where nature, the outdoors and quality of life are of the utmost importance,” says Alice Kimm of award-winning L.A.-based John Friedman Alice Kimm Architects (JFAK). In partnership with AIRE developer, Palisades, JFAK envisioned the residences to showcase thoughtful, open-concept design with interiors bathed in natural light and open to the sea air.
Ten multi-level townhomes feature three-bedroom, three and four-bath floor plans with double-height ceilings and two-level rooftop decks with views of the Pacific Ocean. Nine single-story flats comprise AIRE’s garden level, featuring two-bedrooms, two-baths and expanded outdoor living areas that connect to the central courtyard. The courtyard was designed as community gathering place for lounging, entertaining or simply enjoying the California sunshine.
“The community has an inviting sense about it,” Kimm explains. “Though private and gated, AIRE welcomes in the surrounding Santa Monica neighborhood while encouraging residents to go out and explore it.”
And with AIRE’s central location, exploring the community is as easy as a walk or bike ride away. Santa Monica’s acclaimed dining, shopping, entertainment, beaches, parks and fitness studios are within close reach. Top-rated schools, such as Crossroads and Santa Monica College, are a short distance away as is the recently completed Expo Line which provides convenient access to downtown.
AIRE encourages homeowners to enjoy car-free travel within the community, providing a designated bike rack and bike room, where they can maintain and tune their bikes in the subterranean garage. Additional amenities include resident and guest parking, designated storage for each residence and a private, gated entrance with keypad access.
